Limnic Laocoon

The ancient eavesdropper

Limnic Laocoon

Unique
quivers
of limnic
flora and fauna
shift across
water from
frog footfalls
to kingfisher
wingbeats and
turtle shell
shuffles,
wind
whistling
vicariously
through
wetland
vegetation,
clouds
crowning
trees
champions
of life
while
crowding
out sunlight,
as snake-like
aquatic Elodea
splays its
invasive
green graffiti
lake-wide,
tangling oars,
our canoe a
modern day
Laocoon,
Nature’s
balancing act
of contrapposto
forces.

  1. What a gloriously painterly post, Tyler. The exquisite photo echoes the best of the 17th- and 18th-C pastoral artists’ images, the poem writhes along like its own placid snake, meandering through in that serpentine way, and of course I love the alliteration *and* allusion of the title to tie it all together. Magical!

    • Thank you kindly, my friend! So glad you connected with the scenery and my poem’s message! I love your poetic description – it fits the theme of my post perfectly 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler
