Waiting For The Boat, A Poem by Dandelion De La Rue with Pics from Cambodia


Waiting for the Boat

The sun shimmers on the murky water
A little fish jumps
a dragonfly hovers over all
And ghosts of tigers look across the river.
The couple on the bench
Look at their watches
The boat is late, they say, annoyed.
The boat is always late.
But the sun, the fish, the dragonfly
And the tiger ghosts
Are right on time.
