time again

the water snake rises into joy

wind travelling floatsom

tiny salt water spirits tumble across pebbles

as gulls soar into the setting sun

multifaceted hues the length and breadth of eternity

kiss the trembling aspens with lips of light

as the choke cherries ripen into deep purple

(summer travels 8/16/01)

Wading into the water

firm bottom & gentle cold

stirs the bone

a red striped insect sunning

stirs the imagination

the cascading distant rain streaks

stirs the spirit

& the wind, the wind

reaching, caressing, chopping, stroking

stirs the soul

your skin bronzes turning to gold

nature massages & transforms

is that love?
