if we lift up this

if we lift up this
corner of a great lake, we
will happen upon

your sense of awe, bump into
the same water molecules

when we got to the
other side of the lake, we
lingered on the dock

ladder, watching small fish kiss
our legs, taking smaller nibbles

summer’s willow –

summer’s willow
one long dip into the
lake, a multitude
of bold
reflective brushes

nearly three decades
later, we are still finding
hidden things within

your depths, stirring the surface
for clues in each fleeting fold

afternoon rain –

afternoon rain –
we have our system
down: separating,
filling, folding,
forming
dumplings
until we can return
to the lake to
become
weightless,
with dinner solved

wherever i go

wherever i go,
home clings to me
like the fabric of
our lake, cool
to the touch
until it wraps
around my
shoulders, lifting
all of my
weight with
the warmest
reflections

between sunset and dusk,

between sunset and dusk,
i carry our memories
into the woods and
to the lake, let
them soak in
the darkening
waters before
folding
them in
half
so
that we
can
share
everything
this equally
anchor roots,
annual scars, our
most vulnerable
therefore responsive
layers, and each new
branch, learning to tap
our rhythm across the sky
