I threw a little teaspoon

The imagery in this short poem is exquisite. Visit Kate McClelland‘s blog and let your imagination run wild . . . or balance on the toss of a spoon . . . whichever is your pleasure  🙂

I threw a little teaspoon

I threw a little teaspoon into the kitchen sink.
It landed in a cereal bowl that bobbed on the surface of the hot soapy water
It lay there like the Lady of Shalott in her dying throes
I saw that little teaspoon
Floating in a sea of suds in perpetuity.
Then I saw myself adrift in a boat on a blue lake far away
With mountains, trees wild flowers and untamed creatures for company
And I suddenly envied the spoon

  1. Now my question is: when you saw yourself adrift on the boat…were you upside down? I’m thinking of the concavity of the spoon. And brilliant poem! I love it when they make my mind do that…have all these little fun questions that spin out while reading. 🙂
