ab aqua in aquam

in my cupped palms
water is born –
the water of the silken seer.

seek not for meaning
within the silvery flow –
meaning is just the limitation
damming with rocky fears
the stream.

drink.

the fluid galaxies of thoughts
soothing your acrid tongue
are just the top notes
of universe’s perfume,
dissolved within my water.

on your lips they’ll sting,
having touched the lifelines of my palms –
but fear not the pain that opens doors:
once gone, the scars remaining
will become the nest of your own water-seed.

in your cupped palms
all will be born.

    Lili, I am totally enchanted by this water poem, this ode to what gives us physical life on this planet! Here are my favorite lines, what for me is the crux of this poem:
    “the fluid galaxies of thoughts
    soothing your acrid tongue
    are just the top notes
    of universe’s perfume,
    dissolved within my water.” –these speak so perfectly to both the physical and
    spiritual aspects of all that water means.
