Diamonds sparkle glint blue cascade
Builds and crests and rolls
Curling, swirling a timed parade
Tips white with frosted foam
Sunlight blows from the leading edge
A wall of glass below
Shatters crashes in hurling pledge
To wipe out undertow
Then flattens spilling foam again
And soothes my wetted soul

Day fives’s NaPoWriMo challenge is to write a poem that is based in the natural world: it could be about a particular plant, animal, or a particular landscape. But it should be about a slice of the natural world that you have personally experienced and optimally, one that you have experienced often. Try to incorporate specific details while also stating why you find the chosen place or plant/animal meaningful.
