YOU SEE THIS WATER?
I once had a friend
who grew to be very close to me.
Once when we were sitting at the edge
of a swimming pool,
he filled the palm of his hand
with some water and held it before me,
and said this:
“You see this water
carefully contained on my hand?
It symbolizes Love.
” This was how I saw it:
As long as you keep your hand caringly open
and allow it to remain there,
it will always be there.
if you attempt to close your fingers
round it and try to posses it,
it will spill
through the first cracks it finds.
