Favorite Quote:
"No tears in the writer, no tears in the reader." Robert Frost

From rock to rock we slip and glide,
Water fey from the earthling bind.
Born of the mother, quickened breath still
Molded by waves, that threatened to spill;
Anchored by hope and poisoned by truth
Damaged by those deranged and uncouth
We are the rein, the dance, and the spin
Water that guides the life blood within.
The droplets will bleed, their careful descent
And fade like the dreams of memory content.

The author's comments:
My friend gave me the words water, earth, death, and fairies and asked me to write a poem from it to inspire her painting that she wanted to make. This is the result :)
