Stopping for the Calm #poetry #photography


winter water

 

I had to stop reflect on  blue

the water so beautiful like something else I knew

a robin’s egg readied for spring

blue morpho butterfly perched on a twig

I had to stop reflect on  water

were it spring I would not have bothered

the rain had been a soaking downpour

in little less than an hour before

I had to stop reflect on life

one moment grey the next was light

and never mix your metaphors

when you stand upon the changing shore

This picture was taken Jan 1, 2014. It looks like an early fall day. The storm had had me concerned about driving through it once the sun went down.
