*A Waltz Wave: Upon a Glacial Lake


The

mountain

lays

upon
a glacial

lake's smooth

skin

until

a fish jumps

at dusk to catch

a dragon-

fly that

hangs

above

watching it-

self in

the

mirror

there.

    There is something so timeless, so silent and delicate about the imagery of this beautiful poem. The simplicity of the language makes it all the more potent.10++ (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
