there – at the gorge

A Poem a Day in September: #31

view-from-spring-creek-bridge-beechworthInspired by the pastel painting: View from Spring Creek Bridge by Leanne Murphy

did I once swim
in that sweet pool

where a rose-blush
lies upon the honey
and laughter
bubbles the white water

under the curtain shelf
of the little waterfall
was that a glimpse of me in there
hiding
from you

did you find me

do you still seek among the wilds
of a long forgotten
creek bed

reach out your hand
right now
and I’ll be there

for you
still waiting

More pictures of the gorge (as walked last Sunday), including me penning a pome, are available for a peek at Leanne’s Blog.
