Amber Muse

Amber Muse

 

Chink tinkle of frazil ice breaking at the bow

of the last boat on the water

Circles made just off the edge of newly frozen surface

blocking my access to the shadowy far shore

Watch the wake play at the line of open and closed

A sunshine day

I celebrate life with my boys Zachary and Marcus

Golden retriever working dogs

young and bursting just sniffing out the world

Calm lake but for our passing wake waves

We are intimate with each moment they

show me how to play with time

not passing it but living each breath

as my amber muse’s touching the piano keys

use the sound of breaking moving living lake ice

as backup along with open water and blue sky

in filling the soundful wordperfect nuance of

sound and day
