Gently dipping branch
Leaves caressing water’s lips
Breath upon the brow

Long feathers tip up
And the beak descends to drink
Nodding to itself.

Zephyrs dance a jig
In failing summer light
Skipping on the air

Boatmen turn circles
Rippling waves that never still
Lilies lift in turn.

Fantails swish away
Stirring old reflections
A new moon rises

Twinkling drops of dew
A thousand stars born to fall
Trailing fingers weep
