Soft comforting water
Hot water in my bath
Blue pools of water

Careful don't waste
Water is disappearing
Long after all humans had disappeared
The plastic bottles remained
Clear evidence of terminal stupidity
We take water for granted and should not:

A thought-provoking response to my M.M.P.P., Kathe. Thanks for playing!

P.S. That's a glass Southern Comfort bottle I found in the woods.

Even here in the swamp, i am cautious about water use. Good reminder that someday we will regret our profligate ways.
