Poetry and Water

Does anything that touches water bend it?
p1410976

Or does the water bend to receive it?
p1410975

Is water subject to gravity?p1410974

Or does it make an empty space under a willow tree, for the leaves to fill?p1410973 Is that what we drink? The emptiness that is fullness?p1410964

If water fills what is empty, might it not simultaneously empty what is full? This tide flat in Borgarfjörður, Iceland, at dusk (2:30 pm in November), for example?

Does it have a double spirit?

p1390251

Hraunfosser, Iceland

Is that what we bring to it, or is it the gift it gave to us and which we give back?

p1410989

What if looking into water really is looking into the mind?

p1410977

Are not words only pools, cupped mouths, that can fill with it, or empty with it?

p1390341

Borgarfjörður

Yes, this is a choice, to place before words, or after, or, like water, between: where they simultaneously are and are not.

There are also rushes.
