Poet's Corner

Nowhere to go

Posted: Thursday, August 09, 2007

nowhere left to go

returning salmon circle

to dodge snagging hooks

floating insect drops

ripples the mountain's mirror

just before the trout

rhythmic padding feet

softer than the pounding heart

bear's midnight visit

ragged pinnacles

stretching ad infinitum


pale, shaking leaf backs

warning of the coming squall

hands trembling in fear
