Haikus 7: On Water

through watery light
and bubbles floating away
horizon peers down

watering can to dry soil
last sips on your lips

empty sleeve hanging
don't let him see me searching
for what is missing

purpose diluted
by words that spread thin feeling
digging for the still

my eyes dig the sky
where beneath the blue is gray
and where is the rain

the clouds grow bigger
while within warm container
I evaporate

quickly plug the holes
all my hands are full you see
while I pour out into space
