Stump

Stump, a photo by mrsdkrebs on Flickr.

A photo by Denise Krebs inspired this:

If you pause
And hold so still
Barely breathe-
Yes: movement nil;

Look to the right
In ivy leaves five
Just a flash
Flash alive;

Stay still now
And look again;
Sparkles appear
In sets of ten;

If still you be
And still you stay
Fairies will dance
And in ivy play

Stepping in time
With the blink of your eye
Just wait; Just look
Once: they will fly

And you will see
Briefly: A pas de chat;
A turn of a wing
Then gone, like that.

How about you? What photo will inspire you?
