Jagged shiny pebbles,
seeds of knowing
beneath cold water
flowing- –
sharp underfoot
pierces the membrane
of rainbow light around me.
A momentary throwing off
the balancing act
my heart plays- –
when keeping time
in cerebral environs.

Breathing deeply,
I start again
the ritual- –
making love
on paper is easy
when it’s in season.
