5/30/10 – wishing well (6.8.6 haiku, after Jon Schmidt’s “Longing”)

Body and soul resting after a 2-hour bike ride on this perfect summer Sunday, randomly came upon Jon Schmidt’s little piano piece “Longing” (youtube, here), and the image of a penny for your thoughts in a wishing well popped into my head. Yes, I am still writing poetry for Marilyn, gone over five years now.

wishing well

flashing up from the depth
your thoughts your dreams still beam, I smile
My last penny well spent

  1. I really like the photo that goes along with this poem. I think the last line is very striking and lasting. Taking a look at this piece was absolutely time well spent. Have a great weekend.

  2. Just a wonderful poem…and the photo you selected to go with it was perfect.
