Crystal Pools - Poem by Heather Burns

As I gazed into large
glowing eyes
clear as crystal
shining like diamonds.

I was caught off guard
my protective shield
was down
for a time I was lost
in their beauty
swallowed up in the

Opaque pools of water
inticed me
I wanted to wade in
feel splashing
around my ankles.

Get wet, be taught to
swim in those waters
know all of their
become familiar with

We stood in silence
not a word was uttered
I understood, they

I had been caught in
their clutch
my guard is up now
my shield has been

crystal pools only
once in a life time.
