WATER SPRINGS


WATER HAS CLEANED THE SKY AND WIND IS MOVING THINGS THROUGH 
IT. SPANGLES OF POLLEN ARE BLOWN FROM A HILLTOP. OUT OF THAT 
BANK OF STRAIGHT-UP STRATA COMES POLLEN WHICH IS WASHED DOWN 
TO A LAKE UNDER THE GROUND AND BECOMES SMALL WATER THINGS.

SOME POLLEN DOES NOT GET DOWN BUT GOES OVER TO BLACK EARTH 
LIKE THAT BLACK THING WITH AN EGG IN IT. THE DOTS ARE EGGS FROM 
POLLEN THAT HAVE TOUCHED THE SPRING WATER AND BECOME GOOD 
FOR THE EARTH. THE GREAT SPRING WATER PUMPS ARE DRAINING A 
WATERSHED FOR ALL OF THIS.
