Night Swimming at Sauble


To the east,

the trailing light of shooting stars

and the pale rind of the beach

we can scarcely see each other,

talking philosophy, or some nonsense

enjoying the last of the day’s heat,

up to our necks in the lake

above us, spirits of spangled water

and deeply-rifted space,

one softly dark entity

keeping pace with the Summer Triangle.

With Vega, Altair, Deneb

Only here,

this planet, this place

In all the universe.

Right Now.

Gosh, the things you think about

Swimming at night, beneath the stars,

At Sauble
