Hi there! My name is Bayou and as you can see, I am groundwater. I'm the one with glasses in case you were wondering. My friends and I had been trickling along underground for as long as I could remember!
I love my life.
Things were going well in our liquidy lives until one day we slid into one big lake! My friends and I were separated and intermixed with thousands upon thousands of other drops just like us.
Just like that, we were off again. Well, me and my new drop friends that is. We were evaporating into the atmosphere, becoming clouds before my very eyes. My old friends from back when I was groundwater I think are still down in the lake. I missed them but I guessed I would be alright.
Now this is a view I could get used to.
Just as I began adjusting to my new friends, we were moving yet again! But this time we weren't rising, we were precipitating from the sky! My body slowly froze into cube form and came together with the other drops forming a glacier!
Finally, the sun came out and we began melting into drops again! Just like when we formed the lake we came together and made a big body of water that Teo told me is called a river. I like being a river.
I am so lonely!
All too soon, my time as a river was up and I had sunk into the soil beneath, my new friends still in the river above. I felt so lonely. I could feel the tears sliding down my already watery cheeks.
