Water and Wine (Poem-A-Day 26)

Water and WineFor today’s prompt, write a water poem. Life depends upon water, so there are any number of ways to write this prompt. A few thoughts that jump to mind include pollution, rising water levels, hurricanes, fracking, and more.

Water and Wine

All that lives
In my frig
Is water and wine

When storms steal
My electricity
I lose nothing

When guests visit
They have their choice
Of red and clear

When asked I tell them
About droughts and thermal mass
I am simply living

Just the essentials
For life
And poetry
