Carrying Water


In her soul she knows
the sacredness of water,
of carrying it.

  1. Great example of a Mexican tapestry!

    Happy RT2!

  2. I like this!!!
    Wish I were there with you, we take a day trip to Nogales or somewhere — go shopping for just something like this.

    HIDDEN TREASURES @ the Botanical Gardens

  3. I’m SO jealous of your poetic ability!! Matching your evocative words to the bright tapestry is a gift! Have a great day!!

  4. a lot of work in this! Very colourful too.

  5. The water of life, we exist when we get our share. The woman is providing a very crucial service, the family and village lives still…

  9. Oh boy that is cool. Happy MYM!

  10. Such vibrant colours in this exquisite tapestry!

  11. Hi MMT ~~ Haven’t visited for a bit. 🙂 Neither have you me.

    Your picture and verse reminds me of the song, “Walk Like an Egyptian.” 🙂 In Egypt more than half need to carry water because they don’t have it in their homes.

    That is also why, they are used to carrying water, they can live in the cemeteries in Cairo and other crowded places. No water there either of course but it might be closer than many of the homes.

  12. beautiful shot, loved it 🙂 visiting from Mellow Yellow Monday, hope that you can return the visit too.

  13. is that knitted? its fantastic!
