Water – Poem


Oceans of water,
covering the whole of earth
are teaming with life.

The sun strikes the seas,
the water liquid no more.
High above the ground,
clouds like cotton float around.
Blown on the wind, far and wide.

From the sky it falls.
Soft as feathers, hard as stone.
Bringing life to earth.

This is my first entry in the Writing 201: Poetry series. Today’s prompt is water, using the haiku poetry form.

I decided to stretch my muscles a bit by going for a more complex piece. A standard haiku (5/7/5) followed by a tanka (5/7/5/7/7) and finished up with a third stanza back in haiku from.

So what do you think?
