Frogspawn

These portable creatures -

suitcases in green and grey -

lay down their luggage,

deposited on the banks.

Venn Diagrams, consensual circles

pressed together.

The vitreous humours

of a thousand unblinking eyes.

A tangled rope of pearls

yielding to the whim

of Vesna and the water's gentle cadence.

All Spring they cultivate duality.

Amphibious, aqueous, anomalous...

flickering like the lights in your eyes.

Till at last, tiny commas break loose

To punctuate the pond.

  1. I like it, it's got a bit of an eastern feel to it and the last two lines are great
