Spirit of Water

September 3, 2010

We freely follow the path that we choose

We fill the world with our laughter

We roll with the tide, we rise with the dew

We are the spirit of water

We create energy dancing or still

Movement is part of our nature

We heal the earth, we always will

We are the spirit of water

We are an idea stream

Trickling into a river of dreams

Roaring and rumbling down to a creative ocean

We rise up to the sky

As clouds we fly by

Pouring down rain we fall and we flood and we flow

And open the seeds so new life will grow

We bring serenity, peace from within

We melt the ice of the winter

A rainbow, a storm, a comforting friend

We are the spirit of water

Water’s essence is fairness; transparent, lifting all, nurturing all, so much of us all. At NYCA we work in such openness. Vulnerability and innocence blend with expertise and frankness. Guy was inspired to write a song. The lyrics hang in a frame outside the New York conference room and permeate the ocean air that fills our home.
