Sometimes the smallest things in nature reminds us that we're in a rut and need to move on!

Fluid crystals/

shimmer on an emerald leaf/

falling slowly/


splash to the ground/

& solidify/

forming an illustrious array of sparkling diamonds/


tantilize my mind & compels me to arise/


to find that pot of gold at the end of the parched driveway/

abutting the river's edge/


immerse myself completely/


fully desirious of being carried out into the deep/

away from the safe harbors/

I'd come to need/

& the arid places/
that harbored me

A rich metaphor for coming out of ourselves and seeking deeper, if not more dangerous, territory. Lovely.

Shirley, Your words are your truths and carry us also into the deep!

Reviewed by Odin Roark 7/5/2012
Ah, the inevitable "safe harbor" revealed as yet another fraudulent and"arid" (misspelled in your poem) trick to keep us captured. Your poem suggests the power of the 5 senses, the gift of sentient ability, and the call to "allow" freedom to rule our decisions. Purposeful and arresting.

I'm immersed in the poem also, Shirley, especially finding that pot of gold at the end of the parched driveway. At least you won't have to travel far for riches untold. Sometimes breaking away from your safe harbors is the right thing to do.

This is a beautiful writing, what you write is felt Shirley and I see it through my eyes. I feel all written here, it is cooling as it moves through me. I am "immersed" in this poem.
