Necklace of Pearls

 Elisabetta Trevisan Art Prints
'Necklace of Pearls' by Elisabetta Trevisan

When my eyes
grow big,
filled with
water,
I flick/flip
the feet
into flow.

I see
the bottom
of creek,
lifeless pool,
impacted
by storm –
the pearls,
scents of
unknown
remote
scenes.

I follow
golden tale
on haunting
quest
along
the litter
of twisting
plants
to illuminate,
scrutinize
the ancient
path,
the price
have been
paid
for
abandoning
water
once…

  1. What I most appreciate about this write is your use of sound qualities - the alliteration creates a soothing mood and adds to the mysticism of your theme.
