IN THE MOMENT


stopped by the bending willows
twisting in the wind
rustling leaves
croaking in the garden
Buddha and the toad
sit in silence

I like the emphasis you place on the stillness and silence of the statues in contrast with the movement around them (the willows, the leaves, the wind).

Very, very nice. I love the photo paired with it. Their site your moment of inspiration? Suggests so many things with so wonderfully few words. Thank you for visiting my site and for sharing this poem.

Love the image, pretty much the visual I would have imagined from your words.
