Water Picture

In the pond in the park
all things are doubled:
Long buildings hang and
wriggle gently. Chimneys

Stunning! Absolutely stunning! ! How hard that must have been to describe things upside down so well that I could see the images in the pond. Captivating, enjoyable, in all ways poetic. She gets a huge 10 from me and a spot on my fav list.

Beautiful poem! So rich and vibrant with imagery. Last lines have specially struck me. Is poetess trying to tell the power of love brought out through an image of kissing duck. Love certainly has power to create ripples in life.

This poem is really magnificent in its entirety. Staring into the water makes everything topsy turvy. A distorted image but an image nonetheless. A glorious write.
An inverted view of life That only a poet can paint so well looking at placid waters images in a dance so swell I welcome all ye poets reading this to my page too

So rich and imaginative one visual image transformed into this work of stellar work, the imagery is just bursting life and clarity. Deserves a higher rating then it currently has
