diving in

a dream

on a calm day

without thinking

i dive in

a river full of colors

chattering, sighs and laughs

i skim across the surface

avoiding rocks and logs and jumping fish

i know what happens

when i go in

i reach a bridge

and try to walk across

the wood disintegrates

there's nothing there

to hold me up

  1. You've Caught Me Staring

    The way you watch me,
    posed behind a slender reed
    as if you quickly
    would disappear if
    I looked away for a moment,
    like a cheshire cat,
    the way you watch me
    changes me deep in the pith.
    I thank you for that.
