Watery Thoughts


Glassy smooth

a velvet groove…

Despite the fear

heart does move..


crystal wet

and cool I bet…

But no toe

will leave this net…


Emotions flay

so high today…

but the ground

is where I stay…


Like a simple waterfall…

Aquatic feelings need them all….

But even when I hear the call…

wont end up in gator’s jaw…

  1. me the first commentator lol! don’t and never hesitate to dip your toe on that water, Lolong might watching underneath its crystalline gorgeousness πŸ™‚ great piece!

  2. Ahhhh, gotta love this one, and look, you are rhyming again. You do that so well. I’m not too sure, but that picture trult looks like the gators might be worth a dip. Seriously? There’s gators in it, for real? Yikes!

      • I can’t imagine living somewhere like that…I think the worst we have here is mosquito larva and leeches, bad, but not THAT bad…love the undercurrent to this piece too…very nicely written

  3. Oh wow..this shot is amazing. All those beautiful tones in the water… and the definted cloud canopy! Also terrific depth ~ great job David. And to the poem — lovely and lyrical as usual. I can see why you might consider at dip but agree — stay safe! I adore the whoel poem but first stanza – my favorite for sure;)

  4. “Despite the fear heart does move” ~ that line is superb.
    “Aquatic feelings need them all” ~ thought provoking.
    Photo = lovely times ten. What’s not to like? Depth, contrast, beauty merging in words and photo.
    Do you think your poems match your inner journey? What are your gators? What are the inviting but dangerous waters? Those are what I think, when I read. I know mine.
    Another A+ ‘teach’… Mr. Whitman, I mean.

  5. Oh this is brilliant – has a real undertone to it too. The photo is fabulous – is all this scenery around you? If so – you are so lucky to be surrounded by such beautiful countryside πŸ™‚

  6. David, your very very nice poem, … photography is stunning. I love everything.
    Thank you for sharing with us.
    Wishing you a wonderful weekend! πŸ™‚

  7. I’m really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one today..
