Lady In the Lake

I’m just another lady in the lake
swordless
boatless
knightless
no filmy veils across the hidden paths
no slow footsteps keeping time with chants of prayer and power
frog song is all that echoes
and a whispered whirring of tiny wings
no Fae lights or trees with ancient eyes
only water 
water lapping, rising, falling
a tangle of trailing weeds
mist and muck and sandy dust
time stands still in other places
but passes by here
leaving me to float
aimlessly
no name
no poem
no monument
just a passing ripple as I submerge
that the water won’t remember…

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
