Incremental Poetry ~ 15 Lines

By the Waters

Creation the more acquainting
Silent and happily painting
Waterscape

On placid lake’s surface striding
While from hungry nibblers hiding
Waterbug

Driftwood worn smooth, freely floating
Tumbling, each surface recoating
Waterlogged

Such power invigorating
The thunder exhilarating
Waterfall

Into my exile inviting
You, on stationery writing
Watermark
