Laughter sparkles like glass
bubbling with champagne

until it shatters

and dissolves
into a pool
of tears

fragile is the moment
quickly feelings turn

serenity holds them all
like a mother’s arms
holding her child
close to her heart

The photos may have nothing to do with the poem but somehow, they speak to me of serenity.  There is something magical and calming about swans gliding on reflective waters, alone in their own world.

  1. Your words are moving and calming at the same time. It’s how you write the words, your doing 8t right. Would love your feedback on my new short called The Writers Block

  2. Calming poem, and I also think that is a calming photo too. Sometimes it takes a quiet moment to feel peace. Beautiful shot from afar. Hope all is well and winter is going okay for you 🙂

    1. Thanks, Mabel. 🙂 All’s well with us. So far, late fall has been warmer than previous years. And you, how’s your book coming along? Good luck with the writing. 🙂

  3. Isn’t it funny that swans do indeed convey serenity (I suppose because they glide so smoothly and quietly) although they are actually quite nasty and aggressive?! Beautiful verse and photos.

    1. Thanks. God bless you, too. I am sorry for the delayed reply. I rarely get to use my desktop where I do most of my blogging. My children hog it these days.

    1. Sorry, I caught up with the comments just now. I rarely get the chance to use my desktop where I do most of the blogging work. My kids take turns using it. I much appreciate the re-blog and your feedback. 🙂
