Tangible Pond

Tangible Pond

A Poem by Ty
"

Tangible Pond

"
Something tangible.
Sands and oceans, their waves
Together banded till,
The moon intervenes.
And I'd sit on the banks of rivers and streams,
Or outer space.
These dreams.
Teardrop waterfalls,
It seems these waterways would double as watersheds.

Longing for closeness,
Something tangible,
Hoping these ripples in ponds would fade;
Calm, clarity, focus.
They say,
People hear what they see.
And I've seen the grief that's heard in night screams
The line drawn in the sands.
The grand lone line I walk,
The clock's hands.
The line between rich and poverty again,
So again;
Something tangible.

Truly kind words my friend. Your feedback is important!
Nice write. I like the idea of trying to hold onto something that has no real substance. Like grains of sand in your hand. Interesting ideas. Thanks for sharing.

So beautiful, 'Grains of sand in your hand'. Thanks so much for dropping in.
We feel the unseen- when the movement stops and the ripples are calm the true vision appears- so close yet so far at times- wonderfully written🌹

indeed we do....
Your narrative is very clear and concise. I particularly like your theme of water which runs throughout, and although we cannot capture the sea in our palms it creates a response, perhaps calming or even fear. Most of us find questions or clarity when surrounded by water.

Many thanks,
Eliza

Much appreciated ElizaB - this is partially self reflective, yet resonating with others I'd hope.
One day we shall learn.
"The clock's hands.
The line between rich and poverty again,
So again;
Something tangible."
The above lines will come true one day. Thank you Ty for sharing the amazing poetry.
