Muddy waters

For Colleen’s challenge, “Finding clarity”.

The irises are Monet’s.



the spring waters

washing down from the fields

mud-stalky turbulent swollen

with rain

only in the quiet of still

pools edged with sun yellow

we see new frogs

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    You make me want to believe that spring is here, not technically three weeks plus from now.

    There is, or was, a blues player named Muddy Waters. I think he’d enjoy making music with words such as and sentiments from “mud-stalky” and “sun yellow.” I think he and you and Monet might get along just fine.
