Lost In The Depths

Some thoughts run deep like a well
But for shallow minds 
They drown in the depths

            In a Station of the Metro
            By Ezra Pound

            The apparition of these faces in the crowd; Petals on a wet, black bough.

            Your poem has distinction; this is the quality of your poem. Remarkable!

                Writing a short poem is not easy. It's to create images so vividly that your reader respond to them deeply. It's to wrestle for the right image without being bland and without being cliché.
