Of our waterways, we are stewards; opportunities abound –
Do the wrong thing – conditions worsen
Partnerships produce plans – guiding authorities to
Do the right thing – responsible, logical, feasible
I write new poems in collaboration with bodies of water,
inspired by the sights and sounds of their shores.
I dip my poems into these sacred wells,
quickly retrieving revision.
Oceans, lakes, rivers, streams – sources of creativity, good health, life
