In a blue canoe
we kill the time
with you rowing
in the rain
(I just can’t get)
it’s a silly dream
as we head
and I stay drenched
beneath blue sky
Written for dVerse MTB (zen poetry)
I was having deep thoughts yesterday about my older poem below and decided to continue pondering the blue. Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas as dVerse takes a winter break. I’ll probably be posting a little less here over the next few weeks, but you can still find me on Twitter and Instagram! 🎄🎅🎄
(edit) I know Zen poetry is supposed to be about enlightenment, but the epiphany in this poem is the full realization that I’ll never know it all and that’s okay! 😉

The dreamscape is so intriguing, leaves you wondering what persona’s trying to understand, her own feelings or her companions. A very blue mood. 💙
Thanks, Dora! I think she’s wondering about everything, trying to make sense of his jokes is probably at the forefront! 😆 Really, wonderment is a gift! 🎁
Right, that kind of blue! I like that. The mystery is part of the magic. And yes, that’s a gift. Merry Christmas, Tricia. Hope you have a grand one, full of blessing.
Exactly! Merry Christmas to you, Dora! 💝
Well I would continue to stay amazed and wonder beneath the blue sky. Thanks for joining in Tricia. Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year!!!

Excellent Tricia — I could feel the glide through the water… 🙂✌🏼🕊
Thanks, Rob, happy to make room in the canoe! 🥰
Awww Tricia, I absolutely love this piece. Especially the note at the end, brilliantly done! The flow and the dreamy feel was a delight to read…amazing as always 🤗
Thanks so much, I often wonder if people take the message I intend with poetry, usually I let the reader take what they will, but thought the note important in this case for the full “zen” effect! 😆
I totally get you, there’s that writers knowing of when a note should be there or not. So thank you for sharing!!!!
