Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge – Haiku – Tanka – Haibun



HAKIU
earth the planet
on water dependent
spring clean depollute
~~~
TANKA
not the earth that drinks
the soil retains and puddles
water sustains life
micro macro gigantic
life within on from it
~~~
HAIBUN
Earth and Water
~~~~~~~~~~

Daily dependent, pure clean water from my tap, not how it use to be. Perhaps I am wrong, just checked on line, and found it to be polluted intentionally. Brought me down to earth, scared me, read for yourself. Typical Tap Water Content: Chlorine, fluorine compounds, trihalomethanes. Salts of: arsenic, radium, aluminium, copper, lead, mercury, cadmium, barium, all included in the total dissolved contents of most domestic water supplies. Then we have hormones, nitrates, pesticides. I now know why I use a reverse osmoses filter, removes 90 to 95% of TDS’s. Mother earth distils it too, rain, if you hadn’t already guessed, but now even that’s polluted. Global warming doesn’t help, in my opinion, wrongly disputed.

water equals life
earth is its substrata
both cry for help
