Water

The first task in Writing 210 is to create a poem on the theme of “Water”, either in Haiku or Tanka form and including a simile. I’ve chosen to use the Tanka form, with a 5-7-5-7-7 syllabic pattern.

Water

The first raindrops fall

Welcome as a mother’s kiss

More precious than gold

Reviving the parched soul

Returning life to the land

Does this ring any bells with you?
