lake shore 

tonight I walked Ontario's south lake shore 
as did we the evening previous. 

smooth round red rocks       whispered 
of time's violent eons. 

patterned driftwood              spoke 
to cycles of birth, life, and dying, 
held between touching fingers. 

an sherbet orange sunset sky 
melded horizon to water, 
rock to wood,
the stories of our lives 
to waves beneath our
