1048. Skip, Skip, Skip...

Still pond...
each skip leaves
a tiny kiss.

1048. Skip, Skip, Skip...

Still pond...
each skip leaves
a tiny kiss.

Link with 1047: Disk-like.

[As a youngster I learned how to skip rocks on a lake or pond. I was shown to start with a flat, disk-shaped stone and then to fling it with a spin at a shallow angle toward the body of water. I was thrilled when I eventually got it to skip several times without it just hitting the water with a "Sploop".]

I haven't skipped rocks for years -- maybe I should go at it. :)

Andrew: I'd like to come and join ya. :-)

Borut: You may have something (see my post for Jun 10, 2007).

John: Thanks.

Floots: Thank. Why do you suppose it's called "ducks and drakes"?

Pat: Me too (although not as much chance to do so these days). :-)

Polona: Thanks.

Pamela: Kudos to you hero!

I like the construction of the poem: a still pond, then a skip which caught my sight, and the surprise: " a tiny kiss".

A lovely poem, Vaughn.
Thank you
