A LESSON FROM WATER



States of Being

 
   Stability is greatly
     overrated.
 Why would I ever want to sit
     still and smug as a rock,
     confident, because of my great
     weight, that I will not
     be moved?
 Better to be soft as water,
     easily troubled, with
     at least three modes
     of being, able to shape-
     shift, to mirror, to cleanse,
     to drift downstream,
 To roar when I encounter
     the rock.
