Alpine Lake, composition with Subalpine Fir . . .
On the road in the American Northwest.


How the water in us wishes to lie flat in deep repose
at night, like the water of a clear mountain lake high
in a hidden valley;

And how the water in us wishes to hold and reflect,
like a lake's quiet surface, all the stars and planets
and galaxies of the cloudless July night sky.

The water in us: Here. Now. Timeless. The water in us:
but a mere fraction of the whole, yet resonant with a
Universe without beginning, and without end.
