A house alive come summer
breezes. The lake becomes a
gathering place for song and
Nurture what you have internal,
it lays waiting in the winter. The
buds will bring out what’s forgotten.
Splashing and laughter paint
Make warm memories, and be sure
Time can look through the window
with narrow eyes and only a spark of light.
Dilute the unforgiven, and breathe in
Water waves slowly, planning your daydreams.
Move in harmony with the clouds. Look at
the dog chasing the ball. Paddle strong and
hold on tight, diversions await you.
Shake when you get out of the water.
Plan your journey well,
win over doubters, their skin
is too tight and dull.
Balance each step with
fauna and rock, sturdy feet
brings a steady mind.
Build dams and open
hearts, piecing what makes you whole.
Bathe in the water.
