Moonlit Pond

sitting by the pond
the water glimmers, shimmers
like a silver light
love’s eyes shine, grazing in mine -
real, or a reflection too?

    oh susan, on that one poem of mine about the tough girl. I would have fought her. I was super skinny in those days and not practiced in kick boxing but maybe I'd have kicked her butt off that hill with my strong lets. hahaha (one can only dream) Did you open "about this poem"? If you do that, you can copy and paste my links to the two early poems I wrote (narration) in which I tell the story of what finally happened between me and my rival Margo.

    Susan, on rereading this one: did you mean to say "grazing" I think you meant gazing. I came here to see if you had new poems. I guess not. If you see any of yours I never read,please let me know. Am betting Joe will be home any second and wondering what to make for dinner! thanks for all the cute comments today. Luv, Andrea
