Legacy Everlasting

a homophone haiku

By Jeffrey SparksPublished about a year ago Updated about a year ago 1 min read

I am impressed by all the recent Top Stories that have added links, images, and flair to their work. I think anything that allows the reader to frame your work in the way you intend is important. Although I have no flash to provide, here is a simple explanation to my recent submission to the haiku challenge about elements that provides my own context.

I was told as a child, the same amount of water that existed on Earth during the time of the Dinosaurs exists today. I was amazed by this. My whole life I have believed this and instead of fact checking, I have chosen to live in ignorance. Below is a haiku I wrote about that random statement told to me as a kid that may or may not be true. Thanks for your time and fell free to ruin it for me by telling me the truth in the comments below!
