laughter comes easy
like water flowing over rocks
on a summers day

that sound
half splash half
melifluous movement

i imagine your hand
in mine - years ago
an exchanged smile but

memory cannot recreate
the laughter in your eyes
and the deep waters there

like a boat out on a lake
i am excursioning on reflection
alone with the winds

the rocky shore will capture me
again in its arms
tilting the boat

so that i awake as i fall
like a mouse disturbed
from the shell of my body
