For this week's prompt, let's write a deep thoughts poem. People have deep thoughts all the time about a range of topics. Maybe they look at ice cream and think about all the steps needed for making that ice cream and delivering it to their local store. Or maybe they have deep thoughts about a moment in their life from long, long ago. I'll leave you with your deep thoughts for this one.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Deep Thoughts Poem:
“water,” by Robert Lee Brewer
the world is covered in it
my body is filled with it
and when i let it dry up
my body lets me know it
needs more and more of it
but when i think of it
i usually think of it falling
from the sky and it creating
puddles into which i can splash
or descending as snow or making
ice to slide upon or crack open
with my boots and it's weird
to think of the world
that's covered with it
and think it is becoming
a scarce commodity in the world
even as the sea levels continue to rise
