A Growing Poem

Icicle droplets

Skyfall towards earth

Nurturing, seedlings reaching out

Waves shimmering across sheet ice

Crashing over rainbow rocks relentlessly scattered

Air gracefully glides around every surface rapidly

Goosebumps popping as snow geese fly over head

Raven coasts the breeze observing everything without fear

Beady eyes, loud cries, the flap of power, boundless

Shiver at the sheer audacity of life creating you, effortless

You are just water falling, shimmering, crashing, relentless, graceful and boundless


This was a little poetry prompt I tried out with a friend, where each line has another word added. Sometimes a poem can just keep going forever, but finding a way to tie it all back together is where it gets climactic I suppose.
