An entry in the 2015 Rivers Award
for Writing on Peace & Harmony
Submerge your fingers in the water
Feel it, it’s life's graceful author
Fish and coral find home there
Birds and trees are able with her
Plant a tree, but what about water?
Spills and effluents, where do they gather?
Submerged in the water.
Fly River still mourns unfair
If it’s the sea or creek, do care
For you are made of it, do not litter
Appreciate how precious it is
Earth is the space we share
Water is the reason we are here
Cheers to water, she is our mother
Submerge in the water.
