  1. The abundance of water is something that so many people take for granted, yet for others every precious drop counts. Your poem celebrates the struggle for access to water so well. Forgive the unintentional pun. 🙂

    1. You are so right. In a country like mine, we do have tales of water being denied to those less fortunate-Author Mulk raj Anand’s book titled “Untouchable” is a vivid depiction of this. Even today there are many villages where a woman’s primary chore is to bring drinking water from far away place. There is an ambitious project now being discussed in the Government about taking piping water to every house in the country. It is indeed an ambitious one but i do hope this project succeeds. 🙂

      1. I just read yours and commented. Naah…mine, I guess, is a wee bit longer than yours. I do prefer writing shorter poems but sometimes my thoughts do tend to go all over the place. But this poem, you say makes sense..right? Thanks so much. 🙂

  2. Great take on the image — brought home some truths that we are in the habit of ignoring, how precious basic needs like water are fought for every day by someone somewhere, maybe even next door.

    1. Thanks so much for letting me know that you enjoyed my writing. You are absolutely correct in stating about humanity’s fight for basic needs in many, not so prosperous, countries. The situation is improving but then a lot still remains to be done.
