near the blue lagoon
a puzzle in the grasses—
receding footprints

Of this week’s dozen words I have used: wine, stain, puzzle, foreign, hollow, luminous
 


~~ 1 ~~
 
drinking from the falls
in the absence of a pub—
wine of loneliness
 
~~ 2 ~~
 
near the still lagoon
a puzzled hiker pauses—
her frisson of fear
 
~~ 3 ~~
 
wilderness morning
sunlight the color of tea
staining the sand
 
~~ 4 ~~
 
in a foreign tongue
empty little syllables
rattling in your mouth
 
~~ 5 ~~
 
hollow promises—
tongues clattering empty vows
on their wedding day
 
~~ 6 ~~
 
even one small star
keeps me on the homeward way—
its luminous song
