This is one of those poems that makes me grateful for the poet's willingness to be open with the inner reality. Much (perhaps all) of what we write reveals something about our Selves. Uh... maybe I should switch to the 1st person... I think writing poetry and posting it or publishing it is like undressing in public. Well, I guess - like undressing - it can be done to degrees. Sometimes we pull off a sock or two, sometimes a shirt, etc. Anyway - so much to like about your poem: lustful trangressing drowning, secrets poured into lakes, whispers freezing. I like the way you pair the human behaviors with the images. Artful. Spiritual. Thanks for the poetic boost this morning. I needed it. Blessings and peace to you, Mel.
