Rivulet flows forth from the mouth, smooth, silky, peaceful. It brings water to beauty, and beauty to water. It is feminine and virginal, like a small stream in an undisturbed wilderness, flowing gently, caressing the rocks and moss as it slowly flows down, down from the heights of perfection. It is fluid poetry, allegoric water.
