Confidence

The sun-speckled public pool overflows with expectant faces;
Their glistening eyes look up at me with promises of safety.
Unlocking the tension in my knees is one face in particular.

    Thought I'd go find a much earlier poem of yours. But I scrolled down and saw I'd seen this one before too. Let me keep searching!!

    Funny how easy it is to forget which ones you've read... I know I've already read so many that it's kind of a blur if I think about it too much... I appreciate you going back into my older work... means a lot!

    Isn't is just precious when in a sea of faces you can connect to one in particular, like beautiful music! Love this one too. Enjoy your weekend, TIm. Always, Annalise

    One in a crowd can make a difference--focusing on that one you can gain so much more than the lot. I got that out of this poem. Anyway, wow, you are a very talented writer. I can't wait to read more from you! keep up the spectacular work, and thank you for your kind review on my poetry. It is very much appreciated. Always, Laura

    Very descriptive writing, "The sun-speckled public pool" is a nice description.

    this one makes me curious to know whose one face in particular you were seeing!! I enjoyed this and a big welcome to soup. So nice to see a writer who really seems to care about his writing. I love that you punctuate and you seem like someone who cares about actually crafting a poem and not just writing words. thanks for reading several of my poems. Andrea

    I enjoyed the ones I have read so far from you! I'm not always the best at punctuation but I try my best... lol. Being somewhat of a hermit poetry is a great outlet for me to express myself... I am thankful for your appreciation!
