Water and Time

 

Water running inside time splashing and gurgling away from its source salt floating inside water shining through sheer transparency tears dried inside salt away from face of clay earth dried inside clay staining potter’s hands round vase out of clay filling his cupped hands water inside vase filling clay-face-salt-water-time. Time running inside water running inside time.
