the water reflects her image

like a rippled mirror

swaying around her face like lover’s hands

caressing each eyelash and half-smile

as waterlilies swirl in her hair

she runs her thin fingertips through the aqueous depths

feeling the dirt and silt of her life sift down to the bottom

sins and lies and wrongdoings

to be stirred up by passing fish-fins

and borne down below

to become one with the earth

dragged to the center

to be burnt up

in a fiery ball

        I wish I could, but I lean more towards the appreciation of writers and their works. Don’t know how you guys have so much self discipline and patience to dumb things down for regular ol folk like me. :3
