calm lake
even the canoeist
is still

    I wish our canoists, rowers, etc... would be still for a moment...

    autumn twilight ...
    swan shapes separate
    for the lone boatman

    before I get there
    the sound of the weir –
    floating dandelion

    sunset park
    a nun still
    as a rock

    summer afternoon
    song of the cicada
    lazy in the heat

    sun going down
    cricets syncopate,
    lengthening


    so cool, past midnight
    cricket's drone
