Idyll

On this perfect day
I watch you throw rock after rock
into a mountain stream,

Your words a constant flow, a stream
of consciousness; all day
I lean against this rock

and listen while the trees rock
the sky to sleep. Clouds stream
across the edges of the day.

What would I not give for another day, another rock, another murmuring stream?

  5. First thought: Someone’s missing their vacation. Second thought: Hooray! Tritina time! Third thought: rocking trees and the babbling brook of a child.
