The Pool

i’ll cast the words to find you

in yonder starlit pool

and when you find them sinking

no longer I … the fool


collect them all

with a butterfly net

stuffing ripped pockets

before we shall forget


for upon tomorrow’s fickle wind

emotions are swallowed

and words

  1. No matter how much I read, I’m still always surprised by how much I enjoy your writing.
    I love the flow of this one, I am a leaf caught in the breeze of your words, taking me for a ride through wonderful imagery and gorgeous melodies.
    Truely amazing stuff πŸ™‚.

      1. Sometimes I surprise myself with how happy writing does make me – I expected my blog to be more photographic in nature, but mostly it seems I am now scrambling to find a picture πŸ™‚ Speaking of surprises though, what has thrilled me the most are the wonderful people I’m meeting here. If you don’t mind me saying, you are one of my favorites!

      2. Aww, thank you very much. Again with the rosy cheeked smile 😊. You seem to be an expert at that πŸ˜„.
        It’s funny how things go like that. You find one passion leading to another. I’ll admit that I hadn’t truely noticed your photos before, but looking back through them, they are stunning. Overshadowing yourself isn’t such a bad thing, right πŸ˜…?


      1. I’m charmed by your words! Yes I’m finding it difficult to say on top of all the wonderfully creative work on WordPress. I shall be venturing to your blog as well! 😊


      2. Well yours aren’t any less charming. Somehow you seem like a very amiable person. Best of luck with your goals and I would be privileged to have you read any of my work. πŸ˜ƒ


      1. Perhaps you are referring to “certain rare poets” who adore their “certain rare readers” … who are in themselves writers that make the aforementioned poet burst with emotion ….. ❀

    1. Delightful Isha, had I known you had a Wandering Armadillo marathon planned I would have sent party appetizers, for you make me feel like celebrating. I’m pouring you a bubby drink in my mind and twirling before you xo

      1. Thank-you for the refreshing drink πŸΈπŸ˜€ The marathon was completely unplanned… I missed your poetry last night and then realised that there are many you’d written before I joined WordPress, and then of course, there was no looking back! I needed no appetizers, I was reading them πŸ™ŒπŸ˜πŸ˜Š
