crown of pearls

November 4, 2020


fish flutter
in the water

i peek under
the great blue
and there i see 
my fate.
a crown of pearls
on a bed of kelp.

i reach
but it's not
close enough.
the pearls
filter to sand
i guess
i'm not royalty.

    Beautiful! Your poetry is always so descriptive! The title is also so gorgeous and makes me think of a sea kingdom.

    i notice now that i didn't actually explain how much i love the imagery and idea of this piece, even through the melancholy notes. i watch the pearls turn to sand in my mind and it's a beautiful, sad sight to see.

    re: thank you for the comment on my piece, i'm so glad you liked it. and, i didn't even really notice that i use car/car crashes a lot in my writing until you pointed it out. it might be due to the constant... wondering? i guess, that comes with the idea of how many people pass or be injured in car crashes, even though it almost doesn't seem real because i haven't been super close to something like that. i don't know if that makes sense lol.
