this is water
this is water we must learn to love
while it embraces us beneath our skins
and with our best to keep it pure
lest we forget to swim and drown in sins.
this is water that listens to
the waves and fabrics of boson shores
so that we may know where lies the harbor
that tethers our hearts to the hours.
this is water that lifts our dreams
and seeks its levels and its corners
and when it dries up we can be sure
this is water steering free of borders.

Approximately 60% of the human body is water.
Around 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water.
Water is essential for life.
“Have those who disbelieve not considered that the heavens and the earth were a joined entity, and We separated them and made from water every living thing? Then will they not believe?”
— Verse 30 of Chapter 21, Al-Anbya (The Prophets) from The Noble Qur’an
