Diving for Oysters

August 10, 2005

Wet tears fall
like glittering pearls
down her face,
I dive in, looking for oysters,
bringing up handfuls of mud.

  1. “I dive in, looking for oysters,
    bringing up handfuls of mud.”

    Very nice use of methapors in this one. I really liked the concept of diving for oysters.

    And Happy Birthday (not sure when in August it is!).


  2. Very beautiful poem


  3. Diving for oysters…always a good time.


  4. This is a wonderful poem, deep and thought-provoking and a marvelous use of language.


  5. Daniel, there is such depth and imagery in this work!


  6. this one whacks you in the head.

    its evocativeness stems not only from the range of insights it provided but because you got me aching for more.
