Blue Wonder

I'm dipping my bucket
into the sea of possibilities;
who knows what will arise --
a fish, perhaps,
a work of art,
its bright scales
gleaming in the sun
as it slaps its angry tail
against the sides of my bucket;
or, more likely,
a long cool drink
of pure clear water,
deep and rich
with a cold blue wonder
that soothes and heals
a troubled wounded soul.
