I looked in to you

waving in the breeze

a smile big as the sun

climbing with my knees

laying beneath you

in  your big shadow

nature’s bed at my command

sand between my toes

I ate from your fruit

white and juicy meat

hardest nut I’d cracked

my mess’n wasn’t neat

 

 

“A thousand words will not so deep an impression make as one deed.”

~Henrik Ibsen

Imagery: is the name given to the elements in a poem that spark off the senses. Despite “image” being a synonym for “picture”, images need not be only visual; any of the five senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell) can respond to what a poet writes.

  1. I’ll admit that poetry is a bit beyond my scope of understanding (abstract descriptions and deeper meanings fly right past me as I tend to be a very literal person). That aside, your poem reads beautifully, and invokes some lovely imagery. I also love the distress and high saturation on the photo.
