Water Spirit (a poem by Lyra)

My dear friend Lyra wrote this. Recently rediscovered, it was shared with me and because I instantly loved it, onto the web journal it went . . .(and it has the words "ocean goddess" in it!)

Mountain cascades
winter ice
vapor disappearing
darkness into hovering cloud
bursting, washing, clearing

Smallest droplets
on the threads
of a spider's weavings
droplets far as eye can see
ocean heaving, swelling

Water spirit
source of life
ocean goddess flowing
streaming, cleansing
blood of earth
river-veined, betstowing
