Poetry 201: Water

Here’s my “submission” for Assignment #1 of Poetry 201, a haiku with the theme of water.

 Plip, plop, plip, plop, plip

An incessant drum beating

Quietly tuned out

    I was walking through the market earlier in the rain and could not for the life of me think of a drip drop (nor plip plop) haiku. Well done 🙂

    What you do best here, I think, is help us to hear the water dripping. I think it helped that you used “plip” and “plop” which are not the typical “drip” and “drop” 🙂
