Tied to the moon



Mid afternoon, hot August.

The Great Erie lake

cold and blue below Parade st.

I wade through underbrush, thistle

weed and flower, everything

in bloom, everything sticky

with pollen and bees.

I walk into the water, feet sore,

from a day that began before dawn,

a solo scramble to the summit,

a mid-summer prayer before the blood

and hunt of autumn, before the Iong

nights, stars, and icy moon

of winter. I count one, two, three,

dunk and do the strong swim

stroke of someone raised

in Eie county. I stand,

ears popping from the cold,

and start toward shore.

I see her then. Sun bathing

on a boulder, her body blending

into the stone. She rises slowly.

wanders into the lake, only

past her ankles, and splashes water

on face and breasts.

She does not move

As I moved up the beach

pounding breath and sweat,

desperate to feel wind, to stand

with gods. She moves like sunset,

light orange and gold across

granite peaks and prairie sage,

across aspen leaves that chatter

in soft evening breeze,

and I feel a longing build inside,

the type that lingers like the scent

of pines lingers beyond the edge

of forest, and I think to myself,

so that's what it's like

to be tied to the moon.

to the rhythm of earth.

to the movement of water.
