My Water Lily

Lilies and sparking bubbles

Water Lilies remind me of you,
thriving in the debris,
of a clear, serene pond,
whose face reflects the azure love,
and a thousand sunbeams
glinting on waves
made by the breeze.
Your smiling face blossoms
with your sisters as morning dawns,
and curls into buds,
as night approaches.

Charlie Bottle's passion is poetry. He has lived on three continents, speaks five languages and loves different cultures, people, music and food. He believes that "Poetry uses the economy of words to express the essence of our humanity." It is this magical use of brevity to express the profound that drew him to poetry. While his professional and personal life has pulled him in different directions, He continues in his discipleship of the craft and writes whenever the muse moves him. While English is his second language it is the language in which he lives, breathes, thinks and writes poetry.
