LAKE AT NIGHT


you watch the sun sink 
behind shadows
of rolling hills

a fiery reflection 
swallowed by night

you are there
barley visible
on the surface

you reach out 
sending ripples gliding 
away

indigo 
kidnaps muted stains
memories of sunshine

you turn 
begin your journey
to shore
to me

tiny infinite tsunamis
race each other 
to my feet
planted in sediment

lake water drips
from your hair
as you step onto sand
close the distance
between us

there we stay
as tsunamis lose their race
and indigo kidnaps stains
and lake water drips
from your hair
