Writing 201 – the poetry challenge day one!

Today’s challenge is to write a Haiku on the subject of water using similie.  I’ve written three on the same theme. I know which I think is best, but it would be lovely if you’d let me know which you favourite!

The spectre of death
Hovers over the village
Without fresh water

——————————————————–

Where fresh water runs
The dark sponge of long-dry soil
Turns to abundance

________________________________

To sip at a cup
Of cool water from a stream
Is to taste lifeblood
