Day 30 of 30 (the Toughest 30/30 Ever!)

SPOON AND WELL

a teaspoon dipped
in a well over time
will empty it of water
will tap the well floor

the sound that comes
depends on the
makeup of the well
and the
makeup of the spoon

a wooden spoon
tapping the floor
of a silver well
is a whispered thud

a silver spoon
tapping the floor
of a silver well
is a worriless chime

but what about
a silver spoon
tapping the floor
of a well made of stone?

well that is a peculiar
ugly sound
an echoing scrape
that is the siren of drought
and thirst

    Thank you, Sir, for the steady grind, National Poetry Months past and present. Already looking forward to a poem a day from you next year. No pressure, right?! =D **hugs from MKE & Boswell**
