Water (Poem)

I can see my reflection shining in you
Beyond the reeds where your water is blue
You look so inviting I’m tempted to jump in
But I think we both know that I can’t swim

Observant fingers tracing designs over your surface
Teasing little waves, you’re always so perfect

Submerging my hands, I bring you up to my lips
Drinking deeply – this is more than a kiss
Letting you run all the way down my face
As you spill back down to your watery grave

2007
