Poetry descending

into phrases;
draining rivers of emotion
that form poetry in oceans –

This is a response to wewritepoems prompt 49, Almost a poem, which asks us to write about the process of making a poem. It’s also inspired by Elizabeth Crawfords’s poem 1 thru 12 The true story, which in turn follows a structure from Kim Nelson. Instead of adding one syllable per line I’ve doubled the number each line, so 1 – 2 – 4 – 8 and then back again. The overall idea of this poem is the water cycle, of rain falling, forming pools, rivers flowing into oceans and then evaporating back to clouds and the whole process starting again.
