  1. Water 💦
    An array of blues
    Connects all living creatures
    Unique to our earth

  2. Sustains earthly life
    The most common resource owned
    Yet most essential

  3. – Following this prompt, and NPWM prompt. Two poems again!

    She smelled of sweet grass and meadows,
    Her words carried through the wind in countless bellows.
    Her hair a crisp black,
    Her skin a pale white.
    She talks with me, and all other creatures,
    She knows many people who act as her teachers.
    Small little men like to sing their tunes,
    But the hum turns somber on this afternoon.
    A reflection is cast on our sleeping maiden,
    She’s more pale now, maybe laid in heaven.
    A warrior comes to wake her,
    He hums no tune, but he brings with him warmth like that of fur.
    He lay a fair kiss upon the fair maiden,
    Who upon waking, had shimmering eyes of sunlight;
    And all the colorful songs were brought back to life.

    Coursing through the Earth,
    Making it’s path known to us,
    State of earthly blue.

    • I love the details you added in your first poem; it made me summon vivid images. As for the second poem, I think it’s awesome too! I love reading the works of other writers because we all have a style that is unique.

  4. Whether in a lake,
    Or in the glass that I drink,
    Water makes life great.

  5. Water, water oh
    How wonderful it’s feeling
    When through throat it flows
