She scooped out the contents of her soon-to-be jack-o-lantern

Copious amounts of sticky wet goop went plop as it was deposited into the garbage

Releasing a scent that wasn’t as fowl as she had anticipated as the knife cleaned the sides

After a bit more grunt work, the task was finished

Putting her candle inside, the glow from the eyes and mouth gave the room a ghoulish glow

Emmet said he never used his head, so she was happy to use it for him

Melt (an acrostic poem)

Majestic sunlight splashed into puddles beneath the lush green canopy

Everything here was damp or wet from the extreme humidity

Locals here didn’t have a word for dry. There was no need

That’s why when his cousins from Iceland came to visit they would …

Soothe (an acrostic poem)

 

Surging emotions hit her mental sea wall

Overflowing into her life

Outside she looks like a wet mess

That is just temporary

Her storms will pass and the emotional sea will calm

Eventually, she will dry off and be herself once more

Weep (an acrostic poem)

Wet drops of salty water raced down her weathered face

Ending in a pitter pater at her feet

Every drop carried a little bit of her anguish

Purging her soul of its pain

Drift (an acrostic poem)

Down the river floated the inflatable raft

Rapids could be heard in the distance

If they paddled hard they could determine their course

Find the optimal entrance into the turbulent times

That’s why it was such a shame that they never got their paddles wet

Sweat (an acrostic poem)

Sopping wet shirt dripped onto the sun-dried ground

Working through the pain in her muscles, Lynn pushed harder

Every turn of the pedals carried her farther

Already she had gone farther, faster than she ever had before

This was just the beginning, but now she needed to hydrate

ROY G BIV (an acrostic poem)

Rain fell all around Teresa

Obscuring the pale sky above

Yet a smile crept to her lips

 

Glowing in the distance was a magnificent rainbow

 

Beautiful segregation of wavelengths into an orderly progression

It made the rain a welcome “and one”

Very wet, but very happy, she continued her walk home
