stay deep

a puff of steam
a drip of dew
a sip of water 
an entire drink
a glass that's is full 
can make a pool on the ground
add more water and there'd be a pond
let it rain and make a stream
joined with gravity and other streams
down to the creek the creek that flows
into a lake or a river who knows
old man river, old man river
must know something
but he don't say nuthin
he just keeps on rolling along
goin to the ocean to be with
tsunami's and tidal waves
sunsets and peacefull bays
all depends on the order of the day
splash, a small part of me 
has landed in the sun
soon to be a puff of steam
another life begun

    I like this blank verse John. Flows nicely like the water you portray. Well done in my humble opinion

    I was just thinkin' yesterday that in my next life, I'd like to be a lichen... Somehow your poem recalled that thought to me, thanks. Namaste~N

    yes, it's all one big round, from stream to dew and all the way to ocean and then back again. VERY nice, john. Deep!

    Hi John, Great poem. Can't see why you can't use the same name for a poem. Cheers, Mauree

    I like this one John, but do you mean a "puff of steam?" I think that's what you meant, but there's a typo. Big Hugs, Catie :)
