You are like water

You are like water

A Poem by Miss Marlette
"

Experimental

"
You are like water
Not quite still
In dauntless dewdrops
In swift, mammoth waves
Eddies in your soul
Circling away
 
You are like water
Not quite limpid
Rancid, rough
Full of lilies and snakes
Stinging, wild weeds
On thorny bays
 
You are like water
Not quite placid
Filled with murmuring
Warring sea nymphs
Leviathans below
Screaming for prey
 
You are like water
Not quite dark
Lit by quasars
Of quantum unknown
Crystal sunbeams
Slay deep blue abyss
In startling swordplay

You are like water 
Not quite certain 
Electric as eels
Somnolent as slugs
Silent and deep
Dangerous always

Now.....how come this poem hasn't been christened into the Pulitzer Club? It's certainly a very different style of poem than your usual biting, satirical fare. The poem is littered with adorable and original imagery and description much unlike what I have read here before. Who knew that the fiery, Alpha Poet that is Miss Marlette could produce a piece like this?! It's wonderful in it's flow (much like the water of the title), imagery and vocabulary with some super descriptive word choices. The personified water is never placid, always flowing, with danger and beauty in a startling combination. Beneath that gentle ripple lies a world of beasts and excitement. It's a fine poem and an enjoyable read. Well done, Miss Marlette. 💛

Thanks PlayWrite 😊
I'll stare in my tea cup harder next time. Full 0f lilies and snakes- what an exciting lover he must be! Unexpectedly good.

Thanks Ana. He is.
The imagery in this one is striking; I never knew water contained so many violent elements. Leviathans screaming for prey is the most horrifying of all. At my age, I think I'd better stick to the community pool.

I fear silent, dark, deep water. I had fun scribbling this. Thanks.
Water has memory and it's molecules have intelligence. Say a prayer and it sparkles more. Curse near it and It turns darker. This was lovely to read.

I'm tempted to write my own list of water qualities . You should invite people to brainstorm with you when you write this type of poetry. All in all exciting.

I'll be scribbling a few more like this. Dm me if you like to join with fresh ideas of course. Tq.
I often use something from nature to speak of a person place or thing so this wasn't very new but quite cool.
