Poetry Friday: like in water

I asked my coworker Julie for a theme for Poetry Friday today, to help me choose a poem. She and Christianne share an office in our Mankato location. (Christianne is back from maternity leave this week--yay!) Anyway, they're pretty isolated from the rest of the staff in the building, so today they're playing lots of music to help them finish off the week. When Julie suggested "music" as our theme this week, I found this great poem by Robert Creeley. It manages to conjure up summer and music and a lot of other things, all in just a few words.

Water Music

The words are a beautiful music.
The words bounce like in water.

. . .
Read the rest here.

This week's Poetry Friday is hosted at A Year of Reading.

I'm picturing me by the pond with a handful of random words that I am tossing at the surface of the water to see how many times each of them skips...
