Shallow Pools and Pitied Fools

Shallow Pools and Pitied Fools

A Poem by Christopher Chambers
"

I wrote a poem and decided to make an illustration for it. To be honest, the illustration took longer than the poem, but I'm pretty sure they are of the same quality.

"

Welcome to my oases

Dreams about

No space around

 

So run to a different corner.

While others drink and dirty

The water and the order

 

Snakes rattle-run

and tap those in the sun.

The venom tells no lies

To discredit faulty paradise

 

Dreams were downed

While thought abound,

So run to a different corner.

When the going gets tough that's what we want to do, run to a different corner to escape. Right this moment in time 2020 is proving to be a year to be remembered for all the wrong reasons. It is miserable. Riots and looting and covid are all the news at the moment. I am happy to escape to the tranquility of my garden. I enjoyed your poem, it allowed my mind to wander. Your illustration is interesting. An oversize snake says it all. Pleased to read you Christopher.
