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?
