you may not understand

cattail hands striding
through fronds and
pussy willow heather
feathers soft skin
soil loose sucking
souls whilst red wing
ruffle and stare
humdrum lazy sun song
the dragonfly sings and
thrumming hummingbird wings
broken by the sudden
waterwalking splash
sundering afternoon air
i've been seen

the borderline bored
stare with the loon's
plaintive despair
rippling the waters
everywhere
and i slip under the water
ophelia clenchfisting
fingers offering what
little comfort remains

you may not understand
but this dream...
