Zen Fairytale

As we watched Comet
under Moon in silent Fog,
Wind carried our wish.
(April 17, Fox island)

By the flowing stream
on a moist carpet of grass,
your tongue wets my tongue.
(May 4, Old Fort)

Flames of fire sigh
as your body under me
crushes down the sand.
(May 17, Fox island)

Under a willow,
with cold feet in dewy grass,
weeping for our love.
(June 9, Franke Park)

Feet against the rocks
cutting skin like knives of glass,
but you hold my hand.
(June 13, Headwaters-Foster Parks)

Up on a rooftop
under a red summer sun,
we plant cherry pits.
(June 15, your rooftop)

Floating rubber boat
heard us on the river when
we said, “I love you.”
(June 7, Headwaters Park)
