let us be ever new in our sameness

us, and a waterfall

falling water draws my soul,

like our lives, a tumbling stream
is ever new in its sameness,

our ears and eyes are tuned
to water over and upon rock,

every waterfall makes the world better,
in its beauty for those of us who see it,
and its gift of oxygen 
for fish and crayfish downstream,

may each of our lives do so well.
