Thoughts on Bodies of Water

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #298 – Ocean, Lakes, Rivers, and Streams
“We’re writing water or waterways today. Your inspiration will come from one of these four sources. There are oceans of lotions, land of a thousand lakes, river of dreams and streams of consciousness. Try to find a different view of water like those above. Write your poem with that in mind.”

If I write
in streams
of consciousness
an ocean of notions
pops into my head.
I see a riverboat,
steam wheel paddling
down the Mississippi.
My gaze is steady-
non-wavering–as I wait,
but am not fated to see
the Lady in the Lake.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
