The Sound of Water

Water, life essence
Takes the shape of the container it is in

But have you noticed the sounds?
The many sounds of water?

When it rushes from the tap
A tiny gushing sound
A thirst-quencher

When you fill it in a bottle
The sound changing as it gets fuller
An essential travel companion

When you boil it on the stove
The sound of the bubbles
A baby gurgling

When it falls from the shower
A rhythmic spray
A body cleanser

When it leaks from a tap
Drop by agonizing drop
An irritation builder

When it comes down as rain
A steady downpour
A life-giver

When it flows as a river
A rhapsody on rocks
A civilization builder

When it hits the beach in waves
Lapping gently at the shore
A mood calmer

When it rises in huge waves
And lands with a massive thud
A thrill for the surfer

When it jumps off a cliff
A thunderous waterfall
An absolute breath stealer

And in the middle of the deep sea
Where there is no sound
The giant ocean in all its majesty
A perspective provider
