Water smooth as rippling silk,
Reflecting the mercury silver sky,
Gently surrenders to the shoreline
In one endlessly undulating caress.
Its waves aroused by the wind's embrace
And cherry blossom kisses on upturned face,
I envy its singleness of purpose,
Its relentless pursuit of dry ground;
Love in search of a heart;
Love so completely found.
