By A Pond In Late August

web-footed paddler

we travel together

same space

same moment

splitting the curtain

of reality

a speck of time is

ours together, separate

you glide effortlessly

I struggle through each moment

suddenly blackness

fills the northern sky…

unlike me,

you know where you are going

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
