Cool Water

Diving deep into cool water
Clear as starlight no hidden depths
Just the simple pleasure of swimming
With the one I love


Apollo 11

Once in a great while
People do something great
That will echo down the years
Shaming those who have more
But do less
A silver light in the night
Shows us where they walked
Footsteps wait for us to follow

Is that me?

Bad mood sits like a cloud
Hunger, tiredness, impatience
Imperfect brain and body
Intelligence looks at the animal in the mirror
Is that me?

Fallow Season

The long fallow season
Stony ground where wind bites hard
And echoes through
Empty caverns
Ruffling the surface of deep flowing water
