Narrative

Rating: 1.8
The water is blackish, green, and dark.
It gathers from its separated state, gathers from rain, gathers into stream.
It gathers in the mountain.
It gathers then travels, collects to become brackish.
Water travels, falls over a cliff, is falling.
Water is falling.
Falling onto rocks.
Because water falls it is.
Because water streams it is.
Because water collects into a pool it is narrative.
The pool is cold.

One hopes that poetry is an elevated form of expression, that is, at least above prose. Three people go to a mossy pool where there is a waterfall and the water is brackish so all orifices remain sealed. My opinion of this piece of work is astonishment that the poet has won prizes for poetry. The Oxford Dictionary cites as a definition of narrative: narrative, n. ('nær?t?v) 3.3 (Without article.) The practice or act of narrating; something to narrate.    1748 Chesterfield Lett. cxxxiv. (1872) I.246 To have frequent recourse to narrative betrays great want of imagination.    1778 F. Burney Evelina lx, What have I to write? Narrative does not offer, nor does a lively imagination supply the deficiency.    1781 Cowper Conversat.217 The path of narrative with care pursue.
