Why We Look Into Pools
To reverse the world and sky
in water so clear, so fragile
it lingers on the mossy floor like
smoke before a midwinter moon.
To see depths to the day that
never existed before this moment
ruby and topaz in the afternoon,
glass waiting for you to dive in -
shatter the depths of its silence.
To know something about night in day
and water's thirst and a hunger
so rich and necessary it remains
through the illusion of abundance.
To want to live eternal and green
though the sun curls our edges
and wind blows through our veins.
To drink life deeply into ourselves
deep enough to keep us through winter
and thrust us gasping into spring.
This poem was written by a follower of this blog and a dear friend to many of us. I love Lisa's words because she speaks so beautifully of living life to the fullest. The photos are of Kelly's pond; many of you have been there too.
Notice the new link I've added about forgiveness. It is a ten minute video, well worth your time! Also I've added two blogs I find very interesting.
