This is my first attempt at writing poetry. I decided to give it a try with the Writing 201: Poetry course over the last two weeks of February. Assignment #1 was based on a prompt (Water), form (Haiku), and device (simile). So here is my Haiku on Water, but I wasn’t able to include a simile.
I live on a lake,
which is over half empty –
Flood needed to fill!
I was thinking of Lake Travis which is currently only 38% full in our extended severe drought here in central Texas. Actually, this prompted me to go out and take some photos that illustrate how low it is which I will include in another post. I would normally have been under water where I took this photo.
