The Pond

Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Lent

                              He turned the desert into pools of water
                                  and the parched ground into flowing springs;

                                                                Psalm 107:35

                                 The pond over the hill
                                     Is where
                                 We go
                                     To see the sky double
                                 And the ripples
                                     Send out a language all their own

                                 While the breeze
                                     Oh, the breeze with softest fingers
                                 Draws on the edge 
                                     Of boundaries

                                 And what is

                                 Of the sky
                                     Touching the water
                                 And the water touching
                                     The sky.

                                 May my heart 

                                 And purl
                                    The blue, blue air
                                 Of you
