weekly photo challenge: renewal

Renewal is found within a cool glass of water, a tub filled with warm water, the sensation of early morning dew,  the multiple sounds of water in motion, and the unison of breath with ocean waves
As a water-vessel is variously perceived by beings
Nectar to celestials is for a man plain drinking water
While to the hungry ghost, it seems a putrid ooze of pus and blood
Is for the water serpent-spirits and the fish a place in live in
While it is a space to gods who dwell in the sphere of infinite space.
So any object, live or dead, within a person or without –
Differently is seen by beings according to their fruits of kamma. ~ The Buddha
