Moon Pool by Lynn White

First published in Indie Soleil, Black and White, June 2017

I have left behind me the dark deep lake
with the threatening shadows waving,
with the wild waves crashing and
breaking on the rocky shore.
Walked away from it all.
Taken the path to the sweet water,
to the pool bathed in moonlight.
Bathed in smooth bright light.
Free of ripples.
Free of shadows.
Smooth and clear.
As if it has swallowed the
tranquility of the moon.
Taken in all it’s peace
so I can wallow in it.
I will not go back
to the dark lake.
Not this time.
Not ever.

No more.
