I Am Water

Another nice poem from member Eric Radcliffe

I am silent, gentle in flowing, caressing, soothing, calming.
I am hard as rock, wild and crashing, reckless in dashing, splashing, cascading

I am the rainbow, the snowflake, ever changing, inspiring, ever free
I am the storm, the spring shower 

I am the messenger in christening, the force in nature that helps her grow,  
the source of life.

I am the seas the oceans – I swoon to the moon as I ebb and flow

I am the calmness in the veil of the mist
I change storm clouds from black to grey to white, to blue, moving from imperfect to perfect

I am rain- hail- icicles- puddles- streams – seas and rivers, waterfalls too
I am the performer
I am the miracle of life.

A lovely, life-affirming poem. My favorite line is “I am the calmness in the veil of the mist”. That special line seems to capture the mystery and dual nature of water. I like this poem very much!

Beautiful poem, Eric. Something to pause and reflect on instead of all the sad news around us at the moment. Thank you. It left me with a smile and a lovely positive feeling.

Hi Eric – I just listened to your poetry read by Voice club member Pragya Rathore, and I must say she did a great job recording. Her voice really accentuates your wonderful poem above, breathing even more life into this poem. Great work from both of you – keep writing and recording!

It was a privilege to read your words, both for the mind and the soul. The way your words flow throughout the poem- well, I cannot help but compare it to the flawless motion of water. You did a great job with the onomatopoeia in the poem and the words roll right off the tongue, making it a pleasure to read aloud.

Water gives us life. You have given water a new life, a new meaning. I absolutely loved this. The words flowed just like water does.

Congratulations to a very well written poem, Eric. At the same time as it goes very deep, it gives a broad description of all the miraculous things water is and can do for us. The poem contains both mystery and everyday life.

I enjoyed your poem so much! It reminded me of a frosty dawn in Iceland, the night after watching the Northern Lights. The feeling of something clean and crisp was almost palpable…
