blue flowers trickle
in a dried-up riverbed
secret well of life

My response to Carpe Diem #1306 The Secret Well of Life

Today’s episode is called ‘The Secret Well of Life’.

Then to this earthen Bowl did I adjourn
My Lip the secret Well of Life to learn:
And Lip to Lip it murmured – “While you live
Drink ! – for once dead you never shall return.
