Running Water
By Armando Macias

Water collapses, flies apart then rejoins;
as if never apart.
Two drops of the same stream - together but never side by side.
Two drops from the same running water;
separate but never apart.
Hand in hand , but never aware of each other always apart from each other .
Part of the same story; part of the same process;
so never apart.
loyalty, pride, dedication in the defense and improvement of such running
water, is never apart.
Crashing through life and dissolving all resistance
we love-meet, and savor drops of the same running water .
The fulfillment of home and future travels is found in encounter and meeting.
Two drops of running water, smashing through life; never been physically close,
but for sure - never apart.
