Day Five NaPoWriMo: Poem based on the Natural World

Scroll down to content



Water, essential, carrier and cure of disease,

Filling our swimming pools, bath tubs and washing machines,

Funneled from,

Restricted and flammable for some.

A deep abyss,  unmarked graves,

A triumph, icy swimming lessons, conquering and conquered waves,

Svadhishthana, entire ocean in a drop,

Home to neon coral and slippery frog.

Reflector of the sky’s beauty.

Queen-dom of Eingana, Longmu and origin of Aphrodite.

Pilgrims seeking healing at holy wells,

Baptisms saving us from man-made hells.

3 women wading as dragonflies dance,

Flood, drought, moonlight and log jams,

Effervescent depths, the world’s original highways,

Mighty mountains worn down by persistent strength,

All born under water with 6 dimes and 3 dollars,

All streams, converge.
