Don’t Be Coy

A petite pen to tide over a tough Tuesday. 30 words or less to the artwork below. If you feel inspired, join me in some brevity.

“Don’t be coy,”
they tease,
as I graze fingernails
against their scales
convinced the pond
of passion isn’t deep
enough to let them swim
inside of me.


  1. There’s something about the sea
    I see
    It’s a part of me
    Hibernating within
    I glimpse the fishes whim
    While cascading water makes me feel trim

    Love your poem, K. A delightful dance of poetry tonight. Thank you. 💜
