the me I’ll be ~ a tanka

be still lily leaf

lest my eyes be hypnotised

by water circles

the glazed pond a crystal ball

lets me see the me I’ll be


Mindfills of s.s. for

Colleen’s Tanka Tuesdays – Ekphrastic poetry – Diana Peach has given us a John Bauer image to reflect on

d’Verse Poetics – look into my eyes

With thanks to Jane Dougherty for introducing me to John Bauer images. I wouldn’t have known 🙂

  1. So serene, this is like reading meditation in action. Such a beautiful and peaceful poem, and I love the nature aspects of it as well. Fantastic writing, as always. ❤ ❤

    1. I’m glad you think so 🙂
      Words happened. The image of the girl at the edge of a still pond feels like she’s on the verge of something and doesn’t quite know what
