Once Upon a Rain



disturbed water
bridges one bank
and its greener
grassy other side
brushes
at the chill rain

still the ripples
encroach upon
the early calm
and pushy dancing
circles spin against
the rocky shore



Three Word Wednesday prompt words: disturbed, still and bridge
Abstract watercolor by Sue with rain drops by IrfanView

I like the visual you get from this well before seeing the watercolor.

Very thought provoking.

I love how you used the prompt and the word picture of the rain disturbing the water. Wonderful painting, too.

"and pushy dancing
circles spin against
the rocky shore"

While I do like the imagery of this, I love how it sounds when spoken out loud.

Your word use is incredible -- disturbed water...very nice, very vivid!

pia said...

agree about the imagery :) There's something about a ripple that is both soothing and disturbing

And thanks for the wonderful comment

Both poem and panting have a surreal connotation and blend quite well. Lovely post, Sue!

"Pushy dancing circles," is so much more than merely dancing circles. Love it.

I agree with an earlier commenter. I could almost smell the rain and hear it falling.
