Glimpsed through dark trees,

Sun sparkles on water –

A poem half formed.

(c) Jackie Le Poidevin

(This was inspired partly by the Carpe Diem prompt, Monet’s Poplars on the Epte, and partly by the next day’s prompt, comparison. But mainly I was thinking of the view of the sea through the holm oaks and pine trees a mile or so from my house.)
