blue water

    I could happily move into
    this imagining right here,
              be a bird,
    I’d have my choice, or
    perhaps a fish, sight
    unseen.   either way as the
    water moves, so move I.
    more than fair enough rain
    or blue above or cold or warm.
    below it would all be the same
    to me.   blue paradise amid
    the kelp.   otters will come,
    talk with me.   roll inside
    my shelter embrace.   me and
    crabs and starfish too.   
            most of me,
            you won’t see.

    but then, about the same as
    right now.

  1. This is lovely.
    If you want to increase your readership, you should participate in online prompts. dVerse poets is a good place to start. Also Colleen’s Tanka Tuesday–I think her website has links to other online prompts as well.


    1. Kind of you. Appreciated, the both of you and what you do. Gave measure to your suggestion, still in process. Used to be with Read Write Poem then We Write Poems, so been around. Maybe I’m an old dog, or just a dog! Thanks.
