dusk shadows are playing across the water
i can see you, but i wait,
watching the birds dart as the insects skit along the surface.
behind me i can hear the rush of the rapids
all is quiet.
the pool is more than just blue.
it's depths are black, edged in gold as the sun flickers through the trees.
green flirts with the edges as the water settles into the cliff's shadow.
blue breaks as a black shape cracks the surface.
the bird splashes and skitters along, then dives again.
i hear my song as the water bubbles over the pebbles and then crashes down as it gathers momentum on the rocks below me.
i will return.
