More Than A World

More Than A World

A number of worlds, are revolving around Earth's axis, each in itself a collection of worlds
Two of the more notable life filled arenas, are the world of water, and the world of lands
One is everything in the oceans and seas, the other all the land above the sea levels

Both share the same air, which flows between the two vast systems, carrying energies
Water World, with water over the lands, has atmospheric air dissolved all through it
All the lands above the water lines, Land Of Lands, has the water dissolved in the air

Sea animals in cages, they need to bring the water of life with them, living in the waters
People seem free in the water, but longer than a few breaths, they're in cages as well
Huge rivers of water running through the skies, the land, and even through the oceans

The water didn't come from ancient comets though it did come from the beginning of time
In the beginning there was a whole lot of dust which swirled and whirled billowing about
Into rocks, stars, galaxies, comets, planets it did form, all the elements ever dreamt off

Water was in those dust clouds which got sucked into centers of molten rock balls
The mineral ringwoodite is everywhere under Earth's crust, it holds water like a sponge
There is enough water to fill the oceans two or three times over, maybe more

It got squeezed out of the newly formed rocks when Earth cooled four billion years ago
It's all in the stars, in all the cosmic plans, the water comes to the surface like magic
Building oceans, moderating the cooling of the surface, keeping the land standing proud
