What color is water? I am not a poet, but I have been intrigued by this question for years - I study water in order to try to paint it. I have tried to answer that question, and had to laugh when I read your first prompt. I look forward to reading the wonderful poems that will be written in response to your prompts, and maybe even an answer to the question, "what color is water?".

Prompts 8, 16 and 2. On my blog. Was fun.

I write two to three poems a day. However, I am not posting for NaPoWriMo. The day it goes international, I will post one a day, for a year!


1.) Guy Davenport said water (specifically seawater) was "frogpawn pewter" [sic] and I always felt that was the number one best description, vexing though some of the more literal-minded have found it.
