and so He hid sweet water
deeper than the sea
a reservoir preserved
carefully for His creation
… have we even given thanks?
I wrote this one a few months ago when I read about the discovery of fresh water reservoirs under ocean floors. His Mercy knows no limit. Pity about our short term gratitude and appreciation.

This is beautiful Sonya. I live in Brazil and we are in dire need of water right now. I am thankful that we have it at the moment and pray that it will rain.
Thank you Staci! May we all realize the value of this life-sustaining treasure, sweet water.

Thanks Sean :-)
Reminds me of a prayer:
“The extent of Your forgiveness is far wider than my sins and the extent of Your mercy is a matter of greater hope than my deed”
Beautiful poetry on so many levels. Thank you Sonya. God bless you…
Thanks for sharing that beautiful prayer….and for the blessings, may God bless you double-fold :-)
Our creator is beyond any comparison,He knows we take things for granted and even forget to thank Him.This is a very well-written poem,Sonya thank you for sharing it.
Thank you Ranu. When we thank Him, it isn’t even for His benefit but for our own. If only we could remember that.
Thank you for this wonderful poem! To me, this speaks so subtly, but powerfully too, to that Secret Water, hidden in the darkness, which brings with it all Light.
All good wishes,
Thanks Robert for seeing the poem in a different Light, pun intended :-)
