When I look into the sky

I feel the reassuring blue

Embrace me gently

And the softness of the clouds

Settle in my soul

When I look into the water

I feel the sky there too

And for a moment I forget

That it is water and not sky

Until a dragonfly dips for a sip

Or a faery lands unnoticed

Or a silvery fish

Arises from the depths

In much the same ways

As a raindrop rests on the cloud

Or an eagle soars the breeze

Or a wishing star falls

Into an open heart

The two worlds, a mirror of each other

There are ripples then

That make it seem

That the wind blows

Among the reflected trees

But it doesn’t

They are as serene and peaceful

As they were moments ago

When I remember it is water that I see

I lose myself in wonder

At what magic

Falls and flies within it

That is as yet

Quite invisible to me…

  1. This is the kind of poem that I stick in my sneaky pocket and save for winter. Love it.

    Now, totally 180 degrees but 100% true…I laughed out loud because the notification advertisement that came with the email of this poem featured a really wasted guy’s picture with the headline “Solved! Headaches after excessive drinking!” Maybe Google Ads was targeting me? 🙂

    1. I’m so happy to hear you enjoyed it, thank you very much 🌷

      I’m extra happy that Google took full advantage to help deliver a chuckle! There’s always room for laughter. Perhaps it has something to do with the recent party atmosphere at your house 😄. Sometimes those ads surprise and frighten me!
