while my girl waddles

while my girl waddles
towards her first sandcastle
              dragonflies hover
over tadpoles and minnows
that hide in shallow waters

    Congratulations on winning an Honorable Mention in my contest, TANKA - THE PIVOT, Cyndi. It is a statement of teetering on the brink of life and the wonders of new boundaries to be explored (the sandcastles). Other young creatures (tadpoles) hide... this contrasts well with the girl child who is taking her first steps... The dragonflies are perhaps a portent of the "glits and glamour" which might entice the girl in later life... This poem has many layers, which I find fascinating. Love, Su
