When dusk falls


Beneath this wild waterScreen Shot 2016-08-31 at 15.46.21

a stone river spirit

longs to feel the wind

rocking a rose bough

in quiet shade

when dusk falls.

in the quiet of this garden

and deep dark walk,

sweet roses murmur to the moon

and rain rustle

in a river of light.

a river of shade

over the forest.

No light on the lake water,

a dark moon climbs.
