WATERS WALK OF LIFE

PROMPT: Water Drop

The droplet is taken on a journey through a life that ends fairly quickly. The trip through Earth and Earth's atmosphere. The single droplet is born in the ocean or in the large areas of water that are dotted around on the continents. As the sun beats down on the waters, the miracle of life happens for the droplet. The salty water evaporates and makes its way up into the sky eventually transforming into the gas that we know as...

Manhattan

PROMPT: Water Drop

plip. plop.
The water spilled out from the fountain. It fell in an arc, splattering into the man's mouth and satisfying his dehydration.  He turned the fountain off and returned to the streets of Manhattan, unaware of the excess water that spilled out of the basin.
A single droplet silently hit the soft ground.  Instead of absorbing into the soil below it, the droplet bounced off blades of grass and made its way into the street.  It rolled down the...

Water Ways

PROMPT: Water Drop

My water come from and oh so big cloud. It gathers up with all of its friends in the giant cloud. The cloud gets larger and larger. It's starting to droop. It's on the brink of falling. The clouds turn dark, the skies turn grey. The world turns blue. The cloud starts to unleash its full power, the water starts to fall. my drop is falling and falling and falling. My drop wonders, which way should it fall? There's a...

From Ocean To Ocean

PROMPT: Water Drop

My water comes from the ocean
My water gets evaporated and the salt is removed
My water takes a long journey to a water tower in my neighborhood
My water flows to my house when i turn on my faucet to get a drink
My water flows through my mouth, my throat, my stomach, my intestines, out of my body
My water flows through my house plumbing
My water flows underground, where other droplets flow
my water flows into the...

The Journey of a Single Drop

PROMPT: Water Drop

I embraced the feeling. 
Connected.
In sync with a thousand others.
It's something I have never felt before. 
Everything was so calm. Nothing was changing. It was just a wide expanse of blue.
Suddenly, the calmness was gone. 
The sweltering heat from the sun blasted me, ripping me to shreds.
I felt lighter. I was getting lifted up by a warm breeze. 
I looked at the other droplets in the ocean below me, trying unsuccessfully to fall back to them. ...

The Mind of Water

PROMPT: Water Drop

So close.
        I feel as if I am suffocating. Suffocating from the rock held closely to my body. I know I am traveling fast, so fast... But I can't see a thing. It feels like days until I am finally released from the meteoroid's grip, as soon as I touch the earth it is hot. Very hot. I can feel my body start to loose mass, to shrink, smaller, and smaller until there is nothing left of me. I suddenly...

Waves

PROMPT: Water Drop

The thoughts come in the dead of night, a flurry downpour of rain following the sudden crack of thunder. It trickles down and sways the trees, guiding the wind to contort them and keep them elegantly alive. The moon rises after, clear and subject to the madness that lay before it, uncontrollable. And when the morning comes, the moon is and was tugging at the tides, shaping them to form a predictable series of morse code. Calming down and speeding...

Dinosaur pee

PROMPT: Water Drop

"EEEWWWWW!"

I smile indulgently at the twenty-odd kids in front of me, who at seven years old are still able to seem sweet while repulsed. Their faces are twisted in that exaggerated manner children seem stuck in, and it is quite a while before anyone is able to speak.

"You're joking, right?" asks Eli hesitantly. "Water isn't made of dinosaur...pee?" 

I step in before my grade can go through another round of shrieking. "I promise I'm not joking, Eli! We...

Make your mark

PROMPT: Water Drop

The rush of the waves against my skin.
all life as we know it is a journey across an ocean of fear.
we fear that we may not make it but that is not the reason.
the reason is that we fear that we will not be who we want to be.
like me. I fear that I will never find my story.
the love of my life. I fear that most of what I do will be forgotten and...

Droplets

PROMPT: Water Drop

    So many droplets, so crowded. In every direction, nothing but a wide expense of water. Of us. That is, until the glowing orb appears. We worship her, the glowing orb. She is merciful, she sees us crowded on the surface of the land and lifts us up. I feel myself becoming less heavy and raise up.
    As I rise, higher and higher, I see my brothers and sisters, below me, slowly rising. How grateful I am, that I was...

Droplet

PROMPT: Water Drop

Drip! 

I come from the sky, 
hurtling through the air, 
amongst others like me. 

Splash! 

I hit the pavement, 
meeting with my brothers. 
There are so many like me. 
We crowd together, like a wave, 
and fall. 

Falling. 

Falling. 

Falling. 


I'm in a whirlpool, 
a body of people, 
like me. 
We come together, 
rushing out the floodgates. 

Crash! 

We're here. 
Home. 
There's so many of us, 
a body. 
An ocean.

it drops
and drizzles
down my cheeks.
an emotional riptide,


sweeping me from the sea.

it is invisible in the desert air,
dancing amongst the dust,
running in red rivulets,
spilling from veins,


casting me free.

it burns white on the banks of clouds,
freezing to fingertips, but making
my heart blister to ash. it buries
the living things, letting them
chill and petrify in its frigid grip.
a kiss of winter, running wild on


the wind.

Me After Water

PROMPT: Water Drop

There is a girl called Me. She loves to laugh, to cry, to smell, to feel. One evening the voice inside her head is raising, she starts to wonder,

"Where do water come from? What are you exactly? I can drink you, cook you, but I use you to clean my dirty body, clothes, and dishes. You are there in the earth, but also run on the rivers and seas, and fall through the rain?!"

"What are you?"

Heartbeats

PROMPT: Water Drop

On a frosty October morning, I walk to a field 
    And lie flat on my back in the dewy grass, 
You can hear, 
If you listen — 
            The birds, singing 
You can smell, 
On the breeze: woodsmoke 
Beneath this soil 
            There is something 
Moving like the blood rushing through me 
    Pumping 
            I know 
There is water here, flowing downhill
                Flowing, 
If 
            I close my eyes, 
                I can see the rivers, 
Blue veins on a wrinkled hand 
                        Lying here 
In the...

​Molecular Memories

PROMPT: Water Drop

I’ve endured this journey many times, yet each experience has taught me new truths about the world. Some call me wise, but I know better. I’ve simply been on Earth for a short moment. Despite this, I’ve had more time than any organism to learn the world’s secrets. Throughout my brief 4.6 billion years of existence, I have only traversed Earth’s atmosphere for about 4.5 billion of those years, so I am hardly an expert. Nevertheless, I do have a...
