bending light

bare branches
so still
they turn to stone

and skip across
the water
rearranging

crosscurrents–
altering
form and function

The NaPoWriMo prompt for Day 18 is to “write a poem based on the title of one of the chpaters from Susan G. Wooldridge’s Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Word“. I chose “bending light”.

      1. My take is the tree is stationary but it moves in the ripples of the water? That may be way off, and I’m not sure what the metaphor would be. It has a mystical spacy feel to it for me.
