Every drop counts

Water oh Water!

We need to preserve you, my dear…

Look that water flowing from the RO pipe,

Oh!

I can clean and wash my porch with it too.

I just washed veggies can I reuse it too,

Yes yes!

It’s good for plants and gardens too.

Boiled the pasta and rice for dinner,

No worry

The water is good for soil so just pour.

It’s raining so heavily today,

Go fetch the bucket

Just line up the tubs and drums too

Use it in a washing machine or even car wash, hey you!

You know what?

I practiced few things…

Oh lovely, so tell it to all other beings…

I reduced showers,

Oh, you did a great job.

I even repaired the leaks,

Oh, you need a pat on the back.

I water plants only in the morning

Good, they don’t need it in noon nap or dinner walk

I remember to turn off the flowing tap

Good that you don’t let it flow freely…

Coz you still don’t feel needy

Every drop oh, every drop

Preserve it like a pearl in the ocean vast

A small step A small effort

Can give water for years

Its the lifeline

Its the main resource

Let’s save it

So we don’t remorse.
