The poem(s) are below...



I stand staring into the water.
Battling the light, fighting past shadow.
Fleeting images skate along glass.
Uncertainty, doubt, nothing is plain.
Curious orange, glinted, then gone.
Rippled concentration, I frown.
Birds fly through a crocodile cloud,
then disappear into the grass.
A dragon-fly conducts a detailed inspection.
Pond-weed beckons, come closer...come closer...
Dark depths hide many mysteries.
A giggle blown on the breeze,
I smile.
Death, bloated, stares up accusingly.
A pond-skater pauses to read the nursery logo.
Another comes to confirm.
Crocodile jaws close over their meeting.
Apple-blossom, blue sky, black tyre-swing.
Nature's reality painted on glass.
A raindrop explodes on the surface.
Another, another, a battleground of ripples.
Distorted images echo my thoughts.
I stand.
I stare.
I drown.

Ceinwen, I am virtually sitting by this pond. The apt crocodile cloud, and repeat reference to depict closure is awesome. Raindrops explode, pondweed beckoning, mysteries. The entire tone of your wonderful work is intriguing. Will be checking your work tonight. Huge Congratulations on a very deserved Win, Ceinwen!
