Essential Elements

As I was drifting to sleep last night, I was half-consciously mulling over NaPo’s suggested prompt for Day 27, and I was struck with inspiration for the hay(na)ku. Around a half hour later (added to the sleep which I’m still looking to catch up on), plus some revisions today, I’m left with a poem of five strung-together hay(na)kus. Poem 27:



waters flow–
do we drink

fires glow–
can we see

currents blow–
do we follow

lands bestow–
do we recieve

spirits know–
will we listen
