The clear quiet lake

The clear quiet lake

I want to share with you
To show, shine light
On the aliveness I feel
When I write
How the river of myself
Gathers and flows
Spilling and spreading
Swirling eddies and stretching
Satin ribbon trails
Down stream
Within the green banks
Which hold the stillness
And watch
Till they too gather their
Quiet green juice and
With wide spread
On a soft wing
Scatter their offerings
And on and on
The ebb and flow
To come at last
Upon the clear quiet lake
The full circle silver moon.
