Toward The Lake


a beautiful
body
was
walking,

the soul
was way
behind.

toward the
the lake,
Her body
was taking
by the
waves of her own lake
and the
blue of her own sky.

the eyes
are hidden
from people
or from
the sun.

i tried hard
to catch
the eyes
like catching
the disk of
of the sun.

i tried
hard
to stop
her body
from walking
so she can catch up
with her soul,
the big blue,
and the sun.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
