The Water Connects

Metal bowl connects by flowing water
  to its support of rocks,
a fountain of metal and stone.
  Pump drives the connection,
connects to the power grid,
  connects to wind generators out west,
driven by air river off
  the Pacific Ocean.

Stone Buddha, one with the fountain,
  connects to historical Buddha
2500 years ago, half way round
  the world.  It all connects,
the farther you go, the further ago.
  Two million light-years away
Andromeda galaxy shows
  its younger self
in our night sky.
