lubricious-men-frogs-and-loons big tent poetry #41- what's in a name

A flock of loons glide low
across the lake
I am mesmerized

Wishing to spread my wings
joining them on their journey
A loon lags behind
so I may touch its wings
to feel the sensation
of freedom
Morphed
we may
become
one
Men and Aves

As he picks up incline
joining the others
in their path
leaving me behind with
silent frogs dancing
in the grass

  7. Viv, for me writing is much
    of my imagination. I tend to stay
    away from real life situations.

  10. I don't know why I felt so sad at the end. and I did. Left alone with frogs. My lips droop at the thought. I imagine myself coming alongside you, stroking your hair, offering you some warm tea to sip.

  11. I always hear a symphony when I read your poetry! Each time, there's a new, undiscovered movement - and each is a treat. -a silent frog, dancing in the grass...

  18. The birdlady of the lake?

    I like the idea of a book of morphings. Okay, you wouldn't stick to just that aspect, but that's where it takes me.
