Poems and Poetry

An Invitation | A Poem by Daniel Klawitter

Yes, as everyone knows, mediation
and water are wedded forever.
-Herman Melville.

Come, you soft-shelled poets filled with sea-water.
Come and leak your speech on thirsty beaches!
Come and christen this hour the necessary source.
Come and sing the ocean’s primal power.
Come and listen to the seas—the rivers—the lakes.
Come and bring tribute to the tributary.
Yes, come and find your calling; your true vocation:
The marriage of mind to cherished hydration.
