Poetic Dan

Watering Can

I am Watering Can!


Soothing dehydration where every I can


Nothing, will get my way, unless a snail comes to stay


No guest, are on my list, they should go down to Bucket


Because I am, Mr Watering Can!


Watching and waiting as best as I can


I see you all here and there, almost every **** where


I am only one Can! giving you everything that I have


Sometimes I'm still full of rain, watching you slowly wither away


Then I recall this tune, knowing there's nothing I could do


For I am, Sir Watering Can


Plastic or metal, I fit in your hand


Although, I have no head, it's probably just lost in the shed.

    A fine write Dan.

    • Poetic Dan

      Always appreciated my dear

    • dusk arising

      I thought i should write u some prose
      All about the new garden hose
      It's a real upsetter
      cos he waters much better
      he refreshingly easily flows

      but dont be dismayed Mr Dan
      theres other uses fer a watering can
      since it's been very loyal
      you could fill it with soil
      and plants like a nursery man

      • Poetic Dan

        Now that is a cracker.. Can I bring you to my Christmas party's! Or any party in that case

        No one does it like you my friend, I actually laughed my pants and socks off!

        Delightfully zany Dan although there is a deeper sadder meaning here. I loved it. Funny too because Rain and Water seem to be the theme today for a few of us....... Brave little watering can!

        • Poetic Dan

          Yes it was just ment to be fun then I suddenly realised I felt like this, I am only one Can!
          Always appreciated
          Much peace and respect

          This one is on a much lighter side
          Some pings and pangs there and there, but still on a much lighter side.

          Enjoyable read

          • Poetic Dan

            Trying to stay on that side but it is a bit of bumpy ride.

            Always appreciated
            My friend

            Good fun write with a deeper meaning, many can be watering cans who bring fresh life to others.

            • Poetic Dan

              Thanks, it actually was ment to be just a pun on iron man. But I felt that too, Always appreciated
