Water’s Edge


awaterIt’s at the water’s edge
that I see you
as the river sees you
a rippling reflection
waves your dense hair
and curls your smile.

It’s at the water’s edge
that I feel you
knee deep in splashing
cool water
breezes produce
gooseflesh.

It’s at the water’s edge
that I lost you
you running away
from us
isolation causes
ripples
