Verse First ~ Water Table
Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.
I live in the Sonora Desert, an arid, rugged, often inhospitable environment. Yet oases exist. Verdant canyons, riparian zones and mesquite bosques dot the landscape. As the water table rises with monsoon downpours and winter rains, desiccated flora springs back, Lazarus-like. Miracles and wonders occur.
Today I want you to work wonders. "Capability is like a water table below the surface of the earth," according to Katagiri Roshi. "No one owns it, but you can tap it... and it will come through you."
So do that. Tap the water table. See what springs forth. But remember that resources are finite. Conserve. Limit yourself to thirteen lines.
