along our pond 12/27/2007

Move then softly and swiftly the way you might want to come to me to show me
the careful way we’ll walk along our afternoon pathway together to see
how it might this time be more than water leaves and air, a pond drifting its own way here
beneath this lifting vivid light, each slender tree waiting white and clear.
