April 1, 2015: A Poetry Writing Prompt from Robert Wynne

Unlike most inanimate objects, water is nearly always in motion.  And we are each comprised of so much water, we are more inextricably connected to it than nearly any other substance.  Write a poem in the voice of water.  Could be ocean water, river water, rain, water in the body, water in a glass.  How does it feel?  What are its hopes, its fears and desires?  What does it want to say?
