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.


The first raindrops fall

Welcome as a mother’s kiss

More precious than gold

Reviving the parched soul

Returning life to the land

I’m a sister, wife, mother, grandmother, auntie and friend. I prefer to be outside and am interested in photography, nature and different cultures. I believe everything on this earth has a right to be here but some things and some people would be happiest if their space was far away from mine. (Flies and biting bugs take note!) I don’t like housework and think dust is Nature’s way of saying, “This is my space, I was here first.”

Does this ring any bells with you?
