Lagoon

Yuma East Wetlands, Yuma, Arizona
 


near the still lagoon
a nervous titmouse quivers—
hawk seeks breakfast prey
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
near the still lagoon
a tiny lump of feathers
after fatal strike
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
Near the still lagoon
a puzzled hiker pauses—
her frisson of fear.

woodland waters
coming with my hands cupped
to dip silence

halcyon river
neither ducks nor leaping fish
parting the waters

beyond lighthouses
where wooded wetland havens
welcome the weary
~~ ~~ ~~


finding peace beside the still waters

Though petals wither,
beauty’s promises are kept
by ripening seeds.
