Holy Water

I would do a communion
Of water
Water shared, each one taking a sip
Basis of life throughout time
The water cycle, nothing destroyed, nothing
Entirely new
I take a sip
It has traveled, bathing a Mayan infant
Raining in the desert
Snowing on the mountain
Its presence brings life
Its absence, death.
A sip of water to say 'thank you' for its gift
A sip of water to be connected to all of existence
A sip of water to express the reverence that we are all human
We are all connected
We are all in communion, life to life
Water drop to water drop
We are of the earth
We are of its water
We drink together.
