Sun in January

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

sun-in-january

 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
