Falling Waters

Water comes in different forms, soft and hard, liquid and solid. It's everywhere around us, hanging above our heads as vapor and from time to time falling down upon on us with either tragic life-taking or wonderful life-giving consequences. "Better no gold than no snow," goes an Afghan proverb, for that frozen white water is the source from which life springs across fields and orchards every year. One oxygen and two hydrogen atoms connected by covalent bonds, water is the stuff that holds our lives together. Without it we are nothing and we search for it, finding the occasional oasis even in the driest of places.
