Magic Pond



Neighborhood pond

or magic pond

or both?

So many times

I lost myself

for a while here.

Ducks and turtles

and still water

compete with

salt-water creatures

and tide

across the street.

I squint my eyes,

play with filters,

tailor this pond

to match my moods;

it knows my past

and keeps my secrets,

while the ocean, I think,

knows my future,

but both are filled

with the possibilities

and wonder.

Today, I make the pond

my own

in a fantasy world

where the water

becomes a fountain of dreams

come true.
