The Pond

See the sunlight dance
upon the ripples of the pond
as the water turns pure blue
in sky's reflection
and a clear, crisp wind
blows all debris away

as if in preparation
for the beauty of a spring
that's quite beyond imagination
as, in totality, we feel
life's utterance

rising from the earth
to dance upon the wind
enticing even water to join in
this living fantasy

Oh, to be a bird
allowed to spread my wings
and fly away
or perhaps a ray
of sunshine pouring brightly
through it all . . .
