Writing 201: Water

“Today, let’s write a poem about water. And/or a haiku. And/or use a simile.”

5-7-5

Water drops skew sight,

like clouds raining tears, smudging

silver eyeliner.

 

5-7-5-7-7

Softly, silk droplets

fall like sands through an hourglass,

like minutes filling

a river of liquid time,

rushing into the future.

 

This post is my first attempt participating in one of WordPress’s Writing Workshops, and part of my scary effort to become a better writer!

Perhaps I should have started with Writing 101, but here I am beginning with Writing 201: Poetry… Wish me luck!
