#OctPoWriMo 18 – Ancient Water

Ancient water pressed into rock
Markings of a billion years
Time unknown before the clock
Ticked inanely in our ears

Ancient water, once it flowed
Across these plains now hot and dry
The same hot sun has always glowed
In the same brilliant and bold blue sky

Ancient water springing anew
The same water all Earth life has shared
Cleanse the world, wash my view
Bring solace to all life repaired

Ancient water, the cycle repeats
From life to sea to sky and down
Future times and travelers meet
Drape Mother Earth in her watery gown
