Flowing – Gushing – Washing over
– smoothly flowing-constant drip -forming puddles-sinking quickly - down the drain - to the river, up again – into clouds - rain falls down like a blanket over - light refracted sky reflected -
flowing – gushing – washing over - back and forth - waving persistence - eroding motion, eats away - glass half full, could be empty - clear and crisp - chewing quietly - appearing calm, silent chaos -
flowing – gushing – washing over - cleansing dirt - transforming landscapes - filling oceans, flushing down- moving through - supporting life, suffocation –
flowing – gushing – washing over – swimming – wading – stay above – lurking below an unseen movement – the great sea holds the secrets, deeply under – undiscovered, undercover - world flipped over – up above – down below – always present – die without it –
flowing – gushing – washing over – elegant power – squirting from – whirling motion – violent splashing tremendous waves – giving taking – a powerful force, transforming in an instant – completely still – moving fast – hot dynamic –
flowing – gushing – washing over – cold and frigid, frozen form - still and stuck – preserved forever , stopping motion, numbing feeling - sharp and icy - dulling life away –
Flowing – Gushing – Washing over – gaseous cloudy, floating above – raising quickly with angry force – hot dynamic, superheated – steaming kettle, piercing whistle - Flowing – Gushing – Washing over
