7 – Moving
Once set in motion the water ceaselessly seeks to descend, to leave the high places that kept it captive for so long and find its way down. It sneaks past rocks and gravel, through ruts and gullies, over sand and pebbles. Too weak to carve out a path for itself, the tiny rivulets are forced to find their way around even the smallest obstacles. But the water persists and keeps going, sometimes finding tiny openings to flow away through, sometimes stalled just long enough for enough water to collect to create a force strong enough to push the obstacle away, so the rush downwards can continue.
