Watching a tiny lake’s waterfall,
Water rushing onto rocks below
As mist rose and hid above,
I sensed presences in the mist
Rising quickly here, a whisper there,
disappearing into one fog so rich
The trees were soaked in white.
With hushed voices a little boat and I skimmed slowly seeking solitude
disappearing into the white. Then, the little boat and I could breathe.
