Still Waters

I have been thinking...

I have been thinking of the difference between water 
and the waves on it. Rising, 
water's still water, falling back,
it is water, will you give me a hint 
how to tell them apart? 

Because someone has made up the word 
"wave," do I have to distinguish it from water? 

There is a Secret One inside us; 
the planets in all the galaxies 
pass through his hands like beads.

That is a string of beads one should look at with luminous eyes.
