Poetic Thursday: Not As It Seems

We’ve reached the last Thursday in May, and it’s time for poetry with Pam and her boys at Two Spoiled Cats.

Each week, Pam provides us a photo as inspiration for the following Thursday’s  poem. This is the photo for today:

Here’s my poem:

Not As It Seems

Such a good place to see the sights,
but perhaps not if you’re afraid of heights.

An open balcony, it seems at first glance.
Would you step out there? Take the chance?

But take a minute to look again,
then step right out there, my friend.

For things aren’t always as they appear;
the reflections on the glass make that very clear.

~These Days Of Mine~

  1. ah! and I got dizzy for a moment before reading to the end ). well done

  2. Great poem…….I thought this would be a SUPER photo as inspiration for us this week. Even with the glass barrier I would absolutely NOT want to go out there – leave the sky to the birds I say!


  3. NOT on your life – even with the glass! My eyes like a view closer to terra firma. But what a view!

  4. More great lines ! “perspective” .. as we always say !

  5. Another great poem, Dianna! If the glass barrier weren’t there, I wouldn’t go on that balcony but with it, yes, I think I would. Heights don’t bother me much, but deep water? Now that’s a different story!!
