in the shallows
a copper amulet
verdigris imprint –
beyond the wrack line
with salt rime –
in wind shade

This poem brings back memories of looking for such things in the shallows, of seeking lost treasure that would connect me with another time and place, of seeking a mystery to which to belong.
Thanks for this.
wind shade indeed ~ and the caused talisman simulation ~ rime as ghostly verdigris ~ your work is fertile with ideas
Such rich language … beautiful imagery! JP/deb
You nailed this one!
Wanted so much to see a photo of your spectral images…alas, had to rely on my own limited visual field!
Thanks for this–particularly liked the verdigris imprint!
Excellent work Carole. I savored every word of your poem. Great take on the prompt. Hugs, G
You could see the scene coming out of those words. Excellent.
I’m sorry about the lack of a visual. I was unable to find anything that approached the the images I have in my head.
Wow, this image is very strong for me; (I feel) I can see each ripple and the glint of copper in the filtered sunlight. Really very nice.
Brilliant images flash!!!!
Lovely images – you don’t need a photo as your words give me the picture very clearly. Love your choice of words.
Interesting take on the prompt.
I like the textures.
Vivid and rich…the first stanza really grabbed me with its imagery!
I would like to hear more!
you have created a beautiful treasure carole… super visual as well as sound…
Your words show the image in a delightful way – spectral, indeed.
i like the talisman simulation!
Short and picturesque. I love this.
One more thing, I will be glad to know the actual name of our Watermaid. Sadly enough, I do not know it.
