July Challenge 2 'water'

Write a haiku, tanka or senryu using 'water' in the broadest sense: from the rush of a river to the drip of a tap, from the hiss of hail to the swell of an ocean.
Visiting writers of Japanese genre poetry are also welcome to post their work in the challenge.

    like the storm of thoughts
    in need of an outlet
