A Poem & A Picture (The Fountain of Youth)

The Fountain of Youth

Photo and poem by Janna Hill

Moonlight on Water

The fountain of youth is a murky pond

Fed by deep springs of optimism

Where no one dares to swim

Doubting toes splash at the shoreline

Mouths turned down like fingernail moons

A nervous frog leaps, we run

Still, the ripple marks the flesh

 

 

 

 

 

What do ya think about that?
