Sun in January

This poem was inspired by an image posted by Paul Militaru, which he has kindly allowed me to use.


 Sunlight splinters the skin

The membrane of water

That keeps energy in

Allows pebbles to skim

And light to ricochet

Blazing a dazzling way

Across ripples and waves

To the edge of the lake

Or even the horizon

Into January
