for blog action day on october 15, 2010, i am posting 15 water poems in 15 hours.

poem #3

i can hear the
water running steady
a light gurgling
and then
quiet rushing
dripping
but those are not
sounds
just words
i want to tell you
– really, i want to
tell you –
what i hear, not
words for water-actions
i want to tell you
about the sounds
how much those
vibrations mean to me
each night, brushing my teeth,
washing my hands once again
a quick shower that
clears much more than sweat
i want to tell you
about what happens
in my ears
who feel soothed
my brain
who feels calmed
my heart
who feels a
closure for the day
when the water runs,
quiet,
on another wednesday
night here on the
west coast.
