A POEM A DAY - EL POZO. THE WELL



This is the well outside the village where not so long ago donkeys would stop to drink on their way up to the hills. The well still has water but is not in use. The village water supply is pumped from deep underground from a river that runs under the valley. We are dependent on the rainfall in higher mountains and some dry years the supply is under pressure, especially when the villages dependent on our wells double their population in Summer and swimming pools are filled. Water is a precious gift and when you have experienced it being cut off or the supply controlled it reminds us quite how we take for granted the gushing tap.
