If

 I 

  Could drink with my eyes

I would never be thirsty

Again, I saw a puddle

And it was perfect.

 

From a metre Away

It was cool to the touch, the way it rippled

(When it was touched) 

I never saw my reflection in it

I never bothered to 

Look, I just want to enjoy it from afar.

 

Glass, but

Fluid, flowing

Attractive

Clear


The author's comments:

I saw the clearest puddle I have ever seen in my life about a month ago, and I could not stop thinking about it. I was awestruck, for lack of a better word, and wanted to write about before I forgot what it looked like.
