Water Whispers Softly

Drift asleep the tendrils say

We will fill your ears and eyes and mind

Settle in your breath

So you live in blue

We will play our bells and muffle your mind

Swim in your thoughts

Until you see our faces

We will stroke your weary brow

Reflect our mirrors in your eyes

But only for a moment

Soon we will ease into your soul

Through your toes and fingertips

Cooling relief for your heart

Drift awake, the voices whisper

We have set a rhythm for your heart

To beat to

For your aching feet to dance to

Your mouth will laugh too

We laugh

Thousands of us are still coming

Until we gather under your feet

Drip from hair and eyelash

Cling to skin

Fill your mouth

Until we fill you

We know you so well
