Poetry Friday: Water Strider

Earlier this week, I stood mesmerized by the water striders in a pool of still water at the edge of our little local wetland. Time stopped as I watched them go about their business in the six square feet of liquid neighborhood they call home. Oh, to be so small that my feet only dent the surface of water!

  1. Your poem could be interpreted as a shape poem, as it delightfully captures the shape and movement of the water strider as it glides across the water surface. Clever construction, Mary Lee. Interesting subject. Your topic choice has me thinking about Valerie Worth’s poetry.
