images and putting them together here:

Plus these two poems work perfectly for

this weeks Jingle Poetry Potluck

Evolution, Environment and Survival!!

No illusions floating

In radioactive fusion

Dangerous drops of water

Simply delicious, Kathe! :)

I am not sure there is actually better living with chemistry. I suppose there is if all goes according to plan. Great Haiku and the cheesy stuff, I love it but it doesn't love me. I am sans one gallbladder and I just can't handle it.

A powerful message in the first one.

Berowne said...

Timely, topical -- good.

Lyn said...

Really grateful for that "whole lot of stuff"...all well done!

Celia said...

That's quite a visual, the one thing we can't live without, water. Brrr!

Tumblewords: said...

Excellent - the first is timely and more than a touch scary and the second is just plain tasty. :)

Isabel Doyle said...

Those snacks look more radioactive than your rain!

Lucy Westenra said...

Very neat poems . . but to UK eyes, that orange stuff is a ghastly colo(u)r!

there is something so tragic when a natural resourse like water, is something that causes fear.
