Miss Trickle

                                                  Water's soft song
                                             She sings as she travels
                                       And tells me where she is going
                                   Calmly she says, "To the ocean I go."
                                       And I follow her there in peace
                                               Until the tide takes us
                                                    And I miss her

    Somehow I see this as a tear, trickling her way to an ocean of sadness? happiness? peace? I'd like to think some sort of acceptance though-- or oops maybe I read too much into poems sometimes, on how I think I would have written them? There is a lightheartedness here & I just really enjoyed this one. I wish you well on your book, I am one who believes that when the right time comes, it will in some way want to be completed. Sort of gushing & begging you to be written. I hope that comes soon!

    The diamond shape of this poem adds a gentle structure to the soft, flowing simplicity of the work. I like it a lot, Caleb. -Jeremy

    This really made me Smile, and your title for it is really very nice :D-- I was thinking of "trickle" as well since it's been raining here lately but ah, I think you did yours way better than what I would have come up with! Thank you for passing by my poem and also for entering my contest-- I am so glad you enjoyed it and do try more free verse, you sure wrote a wonderful one :D
