beautiful stranger


beautiful stranger

by the pond out back

bent to touch the pool of water

clear blue ripples to the surface 

fade to a whisper

in stillness she watches

she waits

she finds joy in the small things

lively things 


jumping from point to point

like mysterious complexity

wrapped inside the inside

wonder across her face

watching cool blue water drip 

from fingertips into silent bends of the deep

the motion of this

lifts and from under the soft 

enchanting water falls 


and settles into quiet motion
