Tidal River

Today we've timed it perfectly. The edge
is deep enough to swim. The strong current
is out there in the middle, rippling fast,
a flashing silver ribbon – no, a fish.
A fish of glass that's rolling porpoise-like,
heading, nose down, for the entrance to the sea.

  3. I read several of these-- love your words, images and the idea. So much of what I write is the result of internal processing, while my blog pictures are moments like these. Perhaps I shall try your approach in future. Thanks for your most interesting comment on my recent sonnet.

  4. There's plenty of internal processing at my 'Passionate Crone' poetry blog! I'm grateful to Fiona Robyn and Kaspalita for the 'small stones' idea, and it is influencing the rest of my writing now.
