Emptiness (Shallow Pools)


My heart grew weary

Waiting for depth

In the shallow pools

No above no below

Just endless drifting

Ebbing out into emptiness

Moments of joy ephemeral

Like snowflakes and dreams

Like Narcissus

I saw my own reflection

And found myself drowning

In sorrow’s dark seas
