19 April: A-to-Z Challenge

AI artwork, a monk walking through ground water and a water table underground

P is for Phreatic Water

Underfoot, flowing stony calm,
this young glittering water, rising
through earth,
through the rooted deep,
like a dark scar
exploding.

It’s trout in the creek weather,
and crayfish in the mud.


For A-Z Challenge. Phreatic Water: In hydrologic terms, water within the earth that supplies wells and springs; water in the zone of saturation where all openings in rocks and soil are filled, the upper surface of which forms the water table. Written for the A-to-Z Challenge. Declared theme for the challenge is Weather. AI Digital Artwork is created using Midjourney.
