slaking thirst by any means
my newfound desire

At Carpe Diem Weekend-Meditation #20 Revise That Haiku, Kristjaan asks us to revise a classic haiku by Chiyo-Ni:

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled
I ask for water

The Wiki description explains the original haiku: Chiyo-ni standing beside a well. This woodcut by Utagawa Kuniyoshi illustrates her most famous haiku: finding a bucket entangled in the vines of a morning glory, she will go ask for water rather than disturb the flower.
