Three Figures

Ice maiden
Cool and still, she shines with promise
Deceptive, treacherous leading the unwary into a snare, a trap heading for a fall.
Ice Maiden growing into Snow Queen in a silvery glittering palace. Chill and deadly.

Water Sprite
Bubbling, alive vibrant, streams dash over stones
Pour down waterfalls, pool into smooth lakes.
But the stillness may not last.
Urge on by stormy weather, water turns to torrent
Flood and tsunami destroying all in its path.

Steam Goddess
Hiss and roar of pistons
Clank of machinery
Liquid bubbles, becomes vapour.
Seems soft and flimsy but powerful
Driving force making shaping building
The fabric of life.

I am a poet, therefore I am crazy - see Shakespeare "the lunatic, the lover and the poet..." I also write plays and stories and do the press reports for my local WI. I ride a recumbent trike, a Hase Kettwiesel - I love it!
