Nothing is more important to life than water, it is the necessary component of every living thing. Nations across time have revered its existence and placed their greatest importance in its conservation. Water has played an important role in the evolution of all living things that has resulted in an intuitive motion and recognition of its existence near and far. If all living things recognize the importance of water in their lives, what of the motions of a flower? It’s parts, it stem, its growth all depend on moisture for growth. Are the actions of reverence felt and performed by human beings similar to those of a flower standing in full recognition and praise of rain?
