At Water's Edge


Let still water be your mirror

and noonday clarity frame your face

breathe according to the slow rhythm 

of butterfly wing -- closing, opening

let water trace the outline of your body 

as you slide through it--


past infiltrates present--

cup the water, redolent of leaves

in a curve of cheek,

blow it back into the water,

scattering your memories.
