Finding Giverny Off A Sand Road In Rural FL

Lily pond

Monet painted our pond:
wind slurring the water,
lily pads blurred with white
lights against green swirls,
the eye of a cataract sky
awash with Van Gogh’s iris.

Mary Harwell Sayler began writing poems as a child but as an adult wrote almost everything except poetry. Her published works range from a children’s picture book to a devotional series to two life-health encyclopedias, but eventually journals, anthologies, and e-zines accepted a couple hundred of her poems. She also tries really hard to help other poets and writers through her critiques (yes, the kind you have to pay for), blogs (free), and The Poetry Editor website.
