Jane Reichhold



beginning of summer
the river so full
of vacation plans

dreams of sailing
a blue wider than the sea
summer clouds

welcoming the spots
on my new cotton dress
summer rain

an invitation
to walk the curved beach
a morning moon

mountain sunrise
I've seen the earth gather
up its shadows

noon stillness
the earth tilts me closer
to the hot sun

my oldest love
fills the empty beach
high tide

deeply moving
between rocky islands
sun-sparkled water

shriveled with heat
the month of August
ends too soon
