If she were a pond

photos by PSC

If she were a pond she’d be frozen;

cold, solid surface marked

scarred by strangers

skating over it,

difficult to see beneath;

chary, wary,

slow to open up,

 unwilling (or -able) to

crack that icy exterior,

expose the muck unseen, un-

detected, underneath






  1. and all I can think of and hear playing in my mind as I read your lovely poem again and again - is "The Rose" ... there underneath it all :)
    Welcome back :)

  2. Beautiful – both words and images...
