An Awdl Gynt poem contest entry
"Blue Pond" by BeasPeas

Drawn to the pond of dazzling blue,
transfixed by view, I see,
alive with shoots of stark bamboo,
a true amenity.

     Yet nature's way outdoes itself,
     and grants abundant gifts to delve
     if I should seek to find through stealth,
to enjoy wealthily.  

What is this pond of splendid hue,
perhaps askew by chance?
But no!  I think Creator knew
that few allow heart's dance.

     So on day eight He gave it thought.
     He'd add to His begets-begots
     and fashion some forget-me-nots
to please His flock, entrance.

Gifts to excite, built up from clay
in special ways to awe.
Blue Pond aglow, hints of Monet,
light plays till nighttime draws.

     Awash with color, soft but bold,
     pond calls me near, eyes to behold,
     to live the bliss as He foretold.
God's perfect mold, no flaw.

Author Notes
Claude Monet, French Impressionist painter was famous for his paintings of ponds, gardens, waterlilies and his use of light and shadow. That is why I referenced him in my poem.

This is an image of Blue Pond in Biei, Hokkaido, Japan - Scientists are not exactly sure what causes the vibrant color in Blue Pond. The water itself is not unusual, and appears clear. But at different angles, times of day, and depending on the light and distance, the water of this small pond near Daisetsuzan National Park can look electric blue or turquoise. The current theory centers on the relatively high concentration of aluminum hydroxide in the sediment at the bottom of the pond, which can reflect light in a bright blue color.

Author's note and image: Courtesy of bing. Thank you bing for supplying me with such delight and subject for my first attempt at Awdl Gynt poem form.

Thank you for reading my poetry.
