Let me read it to you.



Copyright 2014 by Abbie Johnson Taylor



Liquid, solid, gas, vital to all life,

provided by creeks, rivers, lakes, oceans,

it’s what I drink throughout the day,

what cools hot beverages when frozen.

Accumulations of droplets promise relief from heat.

When hot, steam provides comfort.

When cold, with no taste or odor, it’s refreshing.

Water is something we crave,

hope to have for the rest of our lives.


Back Story


In April of 2014, I was participating in a poem-a-day challenge on Robert Lee Brewer’s Poetic Asides blog. On the 26th, the prompt was to write about water. I looked up water on Wikipedia and included a few tidbits I found in the poem. I hope you enjoyed it and thank you for reading.


Abbie wears a blue and white V-neck top with different shades of blue from sky to navy that swirl together with the white. She has short, brown hair and rosy cheeks and smiles at the camera against a black background.
