In the literature we can find references of water as a symbol of life (when water flows), like death (in stagnant waters), for purification, personification of the soul and of the Great Gods and also as a step of life.
Water is a chemical formula, but also a metaphor. The water, like poetry, adopts multiple forms and the avoids all, passes a physical state to another as they pass the words, sounds and images through our States of mind. Before being a conscious spectacle, all landscape is a dream experience […]. For certain dreamers, water is the new movement that invites us to a journey never realized.
“…A stunned river / that rises from his bed
and flows, between the air, towards the sky.
Leads us to a land where an agonizing hell pants,
lips where the sky rains / and the water sings and born paradises…”
– Octavio Paz –
