  • Blanket of pine needles
    Stepping out from shady acers
    Waist deep, warm ripples
    Sky blue pond shallow
    Golden sunfish sail
    frogs swollen of fireflies
    Lili pads open wide
    Smooth speckled rock, reflecting light
    Angler and his pigtailed girl
    Wishing on lines, casting dreams
    Balancing in precious time

    He said
    My eyes were the color of water
    Fish would come easy for me

    Freckle faced sunned skin
    Bucket full of minnows
    Waiting on life to bite
    Take hold
    Let go
    Dipping toes into tomorrow
    Lucent droplets rolling away
    Laughing at the clouds
    Scent of rainwater, warming earth
    Dragon wings humming songs

    I'm always drifting back to the water
    Smiling at the pond that shaped me
    Fishing off the cornerstone
    I remember never wanting
    Anything more
