Incremental Poetry ~ 15 Lines

By the Waters

Creation the more acquainting
Silent and happily painting

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

Driftwood worn smooth, freely floating
Tumbling, each surface recoating

Such power invigorating
The thunder exhilarating

Into my exile inviting
You, on stationery writing
