Body of Water Haikus, 22–31/52

SURFACE

Mirrored reflection
passageway to self expanse
ripples in who you are

PASSAGE

Lake atop mountain
iced skies conjure a portal
winds shepherd entrance

TEASE

How can this lit sky
held aloft by hint of spring
collapse in snowfall

ONGOINGNESS

Walking weary bones
reached the sun on water’s edge
ripples carry forth

RUSH

Lost in dynamics
relentless whirling rapids
jump to rock and watch

FLOW

Hidden waterfall
we see your tale of descent
a secret dance, rushed

ICE

Glide of sunset light
upon billowy storm clouds
waters weep its leave

POSITIONING

A black and white day
bitter cold lines it all up
little bird floats by

BREAK

Shimmer on the ice
fragile collapse along edge
guide the ripple’s sway

ANTICIPATION

Grace of rolling lull
staring into the distance
waiting for big wave
