reflection

in the water
i see ripples of hope
staring backsilent glide
across mirrored surface
two skiesone drop falls
onto still surface
ripples outwardspatter of sunlight
shimmering dance of surface
tickled reflectionmirror image
reflection in stillness
morning light

The idea of a tickled reflection stirs my imagination. I think of tickled as being pleased and happy as well as being teased. Your poem makes me realize it's possible to be both at once and to be delightfully at peace. Thanks.

These are all lovely, but I especially like the first one. And I love the last photo.

Very beautiful images; when I think of reflections my first thought is of water. Love the pink sky and reflection; also the words fit each photo so well.

Thanks for your comment on mine.

I enjoyed all of these, but my favorite would be the 'spatter of sunlight'. I love to sit on the porch up at the Lake in Maine and enjoy the light dancing on the lake in the early morning, before anyone else is awake.

I love your photos, especially the last three!

You have painted beautiful reflections - pictures with words and with light.

That last photo is marvelous, so still.

All lovely - the last especially. It looks as though it could be turned upsidedown and one would still have a picture that made perfect sense.
