Pond Skater

It flies yet skims
shimmies over water
slicker than Torvill
quicker than Dean
swerves by the dragonfly
gets caught in a jar
skates swiftly away
catches the frog’s eye
dodges the reeds
seldom is seen
moves with the light
shoots the breeze
melts in the oil spill
feeds the warbler.
Well done short life.
