Poetic License: ‘Reflections on a Pond Surface’

By JOE PACHECO - | Jun 8, 2021

PHOTO PROVIDED Joe Pacheco

Silent still pine tree

Jealous of pond reflection

Shimmering with life.

Pines and palms watching

Water palms and pines dancing —

Night lowers curtain.

Alone in the dark

Trees whisper and shiver,

Waiting for moonlight.

Moon moves over pond,

Spills milk on lap of water

Nurses silhouettes.

Shroud of morning mist

Covers water and pine tree

Struggling to shine through.

Sunlight raises mist,

Resurrecting on water

Shimmering pine tree.
