Mirrors in my Eyes…


Soft focus morning

floats down on the

wings of whippoorwills…

A lonely loon haunts

the water with its

tired, lost voice..

Tossing stones

inside circles

within circles…

watching the rings

expand into a raging

torrent of my own creation…

until time passes…

and with a blink…

the waters calm

till the glassy surface

becomes like the


that dance


my eyes..

  3. David, as always, everything is gorgeous! Both image and your poem, are fantastic!

  4. Ahhh… I needed this! Have been working and researching GMOs all day (scary stuff) so the ‘soft focus’ floating calls of whippoorwills and loons calms me, and sends me to favorite places I have been… Thank you! As always dear poet.

      • It is a beautiful picture! I can be very stimulated by colours and pictures, so it really enhances my experience of your writing.

        • A need? How does it impact on you? You men are visual creatures by nature, though… 😉

        • lol…I don’t know…It’s more like I want there to be a symmetry between words and picture…a balance and I like both mediums to be joined there…So, it’s not actually a need for visual, more of a need for balance:)

        • Hmmm… I know what you mean. For me, it is also that when I write, I really live and see what I am writing about, and so for me, to have that visual stimulus is like completing the picture. I guess that is what you are saying!?

        • more or less…What we write always has a connection to something…to nature…a real life event…a worry…something joyful. And also, I’ve fallen in love with the photos lately…at first it was just the writing, but now, I really like to match them…

        • …And you match them beautifully! I can tell that you take time in choosing the pictures. I won’t choose a picture until I get struck down by something inside which will tell me that it corresponds to my writing. I guess that is where the symmetry comes in from my end.
