˜The winter rains have arrived in Cape Town. In between the cold fronts, I spent time contemplating a boisterous mountain stream. It reminded me of a joyous party, with each of the elements in turn inviting water to dance. Each element engaged with water in its unique way, bringing out different aspects of water’s character, beauty and gifts.

 Water and his partners
earth, air and light
dance a mountain
stream to life.

Earth holds the water close,
thirsting for his
cool caress, to soothe
her fissured skin.

Air and water dance a reel:
wild bubble rafts
spin as one, and
then are gone.

Water thrills to meet the light.
Passionate sun
bids him arise, and
be transformed.
