I want to live

Where I see the sky


On water’s surface

I want to walk

Where my toes

Can sink

Into cool shallows

Where the dawn

Comes with rising steam

And the silence

Of a world shrouded

I want to rest

Where stillness

Is disrupted

By a bird’s sudden dive

And the evasion of a fish

Beyond my eyes

But staring up

At that same surface

I want to return

To sights I long to see

And let my body rest

Against the soft carpet

Of earth and green

In dappled light cast

By trees that began

Before my ancestors

Ever walked in their shade ~ Caroline A. Slee
