Deep Water

This is my entry into Mizu No Oto - Every Image Has Its Haiku Contest - WEEK #1


Out in deep water,
A red pole beams up heaven.
I grab, pant, and pray.


I like to think the @bananafish would be there to take me away with it's finless body to a place more safe.

  • The Most Dangerous Writing App - This program keeps me from getting to bogged down with what I think is the perfect way. It forces me to keep writing no matter what comes to mind.
  • Grammarly - I use this app all the time to catch my mistakes. If I didn't have a spell checker, you would be lost in my world. haha!
  • Hemmingway App: Another useful tool to help you make your writing more clear, comprehensive, and easier to understand.
  • Steem World: After the @ symbol, enter your name or anyone elses name to see a host of information regarding what is going on with an account.

Ongoing Contests

  • twenty-four hour short story - You gotta be quick to get this one posted in time. He posts the contest on Sunday (usually) and ends it about 48 hours later. This contest has a 2000 word limit.

  • Finish the Story Contest - The contest begins on Wednesday (usually) and end 5 days later. This contest will test your write skills with something a little different each week. Pletty of time to write something around the 500 word mark.

  • Random Games - Yes, random. She will put this contest out on Thursdays (usually) and end it after post pay out (usually). This is challenging because you don't know what you are going to get.

  • Steem Monsters Common Card Fantasy Story Contest! - Coming out roughly every week. If you enjoy card games like Magic, Yugio, and others like it, you might like this game. Write a fictional tale about the card they present in the contest and your entry just might be the one they choose to showcase.

  • Tell A Story To Me, And Win 5 SBD! Writing Contest - Kind of random when it comes out but don't worry. You will have two weeks to complete your work of art from the given prompt. Have fun!

  • Haiku - These are coming out every couple days or so. If you stuggle with rhymes, no worries. Haikus don't have to rhyme. All you need to make a haiku is five syllable on the first, seven syllables in the second line, and again back to five syllable for the last line. So easy it makes me think I'm being super product. LOL

The mood in the last verse matches with the full sky and the solitude of the pole.. that's Venice lagoon in october you know 🙂


Venice, Italy? If so, I've slept on the streets there and may have see the site the picture was taken from.


Next time you come give me a buzz!


"beams up in heaven" introduces the theme of salvation, that the third verse explains in a nice way, full of significance...literal and metaphorical.


Interesting perspective. Thanks for the feed back. You have been very thoughtful in your responses.

I have to agree with Bananafish below. (Love them miracles and reactions to such regardless.) Upvot’d.

Wow! You gave a feeling from the spiritual and the physical perspectives. Deep water indeed Tristan!
