Write about water, in any way you wish.

“The world is full of wonder and amazement. I am sure many of you have heard about Masaru Emoto, who, in 1994, froze drops of water from various sources, then examined them through a microscope. He noted that there were no good results from tap water, or water sources near cities. But he saw beautiful crystals, each one different, from pristine living water sources.”


“Investigating further, he noted changes in the crystals depending on what words, pictures, music or energy was directed at it. The crystals responded in beautiful designs when he showed them words such as “Thank You”, “kindness”, and “love”. They reacted with disgust and disfigurement when shown negative angry words or images.”


“You disgust me”

“Right now, we are bombarded by negative angry energy and discord every time we turn on the news. We see how rhetoric spreads like dark clouds. I can’t help but wonder what would happen if several billion of us projected light, positivity, kindness and appreciation out into the world? Surely, we would shift the global consciousness?”

A drop resting on a leaf
A glass filled with ice water in summer
A shower of water from a watering can/waking up drooping plants
A pool filled, children splashing
A water fountain on a hot day
A glass clinking with ice cubes
A waterfall frozen into a sculpture
A slew of water racing down window panes
A shower of sleet
A storm of hail balls
A glass lake
A rushing river
An ocean

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    You’ve captured so many aspects of water in a mere droplet, Sara! I agree with Barry – definitely Zen.


  4. Love all the aspects, and also the contradictions in water.

    Water is wonderful stuff is isn’t it. I like your “list poem” too.
    My most used is Soapy Water everywhere, all rooms of the house
    and even on the car and persons and pets (not fish, they like clear).
