    drops fall

    in the sweet sweeping rush

    of the rain

    into the sea

    in to

    the cup of its shining waters.



    to a tranquil,

    brown-eyed little river

    or the brook

    that plunged

    over the edge of the cliff

    and froze to a stalactite of crystal



    my waterfall.

    When water freezes, it forms ice crystal, resulting in ice. Ice floats, because water expands when it freezes. Water freezes at 0 degrees celcius. I like to shower in hot water, but I enjo dumping cold water on my neighbor's cat.

    well, breaking up a word into parts isnt always the best way to understand it's roots. try this: The word "politics" comes from the Greek word "Πολιτικά" (politika), modeled on Aristotle's "affairs of state", the name of his book on governing and governments, which was rendered in English mid-15 century as Latinized "Polettiques".[4] Thus it became "politics" in Middle English c. 1520s (see the Concise Oxford Dictionary). The singular "politic" first coined in English 1430 and comes from Middle French "politique", in turn from Latin "politicus",[5] which is the romanization of the Greek "πολιτικός" (politikos), meaning amongst others "of, for, or relating to citizens", "civil", "civic", "belonging to the state", [6] in turn from "πολίτης" (polites), "citizen"[7] and that from "πόλις" (polis), "city".[8] it's like saying the bible is actually referring to 2 balls.. >_> but yeah i get what you're saying haha. politics is messy and full of deception.
