a fish cannot drown in water

Healing Mandorla (Stacy Wills, 2012)

a fish cannot drown in water,
a bird does not fall in air.
in the fire of creation,
god doesn't vanish:
the fire brightens.
each creature god made
must live in its own true nature;
how could i resist my nature,
that lives for oneness with god?

-mechthild of magdeburg (1207 - 1282)
