Reflections on a Pond

Reflections on a Pond

Sun dappled path of earth and leaf

meandering through the wood.

Stately oaks stretch high and wide

to touch the heavens brief.


Swinging moss flows to and fro–

to sweep the forest floor.

Frozen still in place and mind–

royal buck and timid doe.


Lilting song of robins free

and cricket’s violin.

Skylark sings of loss and love–

magic yet to see.


Although less trod upon

than those in decades past.

Memories clear as sparkling glass

or reflections on a pond.

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2018.
