Fallen from View

————-

Sailing out over

the wide expanse…

Soaring with a

rainbow’s joy…

first, fluttering like a butterfly, and

rising up on paper-thin

moth wings…

Then falling with an arrow’s

cool precision…

Entering the murky water

with nary a ripple…

and sinking slowly…

elegantly…

Until the river’s bottom

envelops me in a cool

embrace…

More loving…

Than any…

That I have ever

felt…

before…
