I recently left some water on the table…only half a cup

but I was thirty so I took the water pitcher and quickly filled it up…


As I poured water into water it became obvious to me

when the water from the pitcher met the water from the cup…

they blended easily.


And once the two waters joined together

once they were completely blended 

I could not tell where one water began 

and where the other water ended.


And I thought it doesn’t matter where this water comes from 

out of my spigot or across the sea

when I pour water into water…they blend so easily.


And I thought it doesn’t matter the color of the waters

because it’s easy to comprehend

when water is mixed with water…

how easily they blend.


In fact the colors blend quite beautifully

without having to be taught

when one water is a color…and the other one is not.


When two colors of water come together

both colors are transformed…

and from two separate colors

a new color is formed….


It led me to think about water…and humans

and it suddenly occurred to me

If humans are mostly made up of water


shouldn’t we blend more easily?
