>Refresh me again napowrimo #17

>Deep beneath you

Can’t breathe but oh how I wish I could

Beautiful and refreshing

When will you leave me?

Spilling oil in your home

Dumping rubbish in garden

Killing life that you protect

Why have you been harmed?

To take a bath in you

Brings remedial to your internal soul

To rinse away the filth of one’s life

Where are we disappearing to?


If I could only go deep beneath you and breathe

To once again be refreshed

Waterfalls at Plitvicka Jezera National Park, Croatia

  9. >Susan,Water is a beautiful element of ours. We should always respect it. If I had my way I would live on the coast in Mexico, but my husband is having no of that. He hates the hot weather. So instead we live in a highly elevated area (8,000 ft.) It is beautiful here but the weather is quite different from what I am used to. It is always chilly at night. Thanks for commenting.Pamela
