cat tails, the river’s eyelashes. 
i stroke the feathered forms,
for the breeze had them flirting
and i couldn’t resist.

water-logged moss
and the pudding movement of mud pies
that coalesce beneath your feet 
to fold into the old earth.

angelic insects
hover
to drift above the growing fish,
suspended
in a thick molasses current.
with a wink they move sporadic 
to change places on the glassy surface
that ripples consequently
in miniature rings.
