The Lily Pond

The Lily Pond

A Poem by Picture of Poetry

It's about a night by the nice pond.



The moon light,

glistens on the pond

in complete concentration

only to be distracted

by the strong sounds of

the king bull frogs.

The lilies glide across

the pond.

The sudden leap of the king

throug the cool midnight air

dramatically kills the silence.

The wind whispers in my ear

telling me about the

lily pond.

It tells me of the creatures

who inhabit it, 

and the screts that lie 

with in the midsts of water.

Slimy rocks edge off 

parts of the lake.

Weeping Willows dip their

long, leafy, vines into the water.

I seek to find more

in this lily pond

as I sit and watch it carefully.

Beautiful. Many a bard will be singing this tonight. (Oh, and what that person said.) :)

I love this nature piece. Only advice is that "midst" meaning middle does not need the additional apostrophe and s. A really great read.
