The color of water

What is the color of water

Through the lakes an iridescent blue?

Or the skies – a weaving thread of vapor

Twinkling in golden rays, reflecting pure white

Light?

Perhaps it’s Darkness condensed in

Swamps, dumps and sewers also

Penetrating through the putrid steams;

Emanating

From Factory’s fire and

Man’s destruction.
