Today I begin the Writing 201:Poetry class, here on WordPress.
I am looking forward to learning more about poetry and how to compose it.
Rarely have I written poems on demand with a prompt. I’ve always had them kind of bubble out of me, when I felt an overflow of emotions.
I’m grateful for the challenge.
Today’s prompt is Water, and the form Haiku (5-7-5 syllables) with the option of “it’s meatier cousin,” Tanka, (5-7-5-7-7 syllables) which is the one I chose.
We were also invited to include a simile; of which I attempted; but not sure I quite accomplished.
The power to cleanse
Internal and External
Our bodies and souls
Surely we would die without
Hope we never have a drought
