Late summer in the Southwest
Whispers autumn, winter...
Woods near the lake,
Chartreuse lapping emerald.
Light feet shiver, touch
A split second of time.

Peggy Cloy

The canoe drifts silently
Near the algae's home,
Wandering gaily,
Nudging the life below.

Peggy Cloy

Trailing roots hidden
Joyfully blinded
By exuberant joy,
Flying above
On kite tail currents.
