Dark

By Cindy Owsley

 

not really cold

not really warm

 ….. really dark

 

first October swim

I can’t see but

memory guides me

 

floating plants tickle

feet squish in mud

a fish flips

 

Owl hoo-ahs

Katydids katydid

Coyotes yip

 

cabin lights a return

a dry towel

invigorates me

 

my pond is quiet

my pond is noisy

my pond is dark
