I Want To Ride My Water Cycle Poem by Jayl Morris

I Want To Ride My Water Cycle



Half a century past
summer meant water
swimming until
breathless nearly
on sandbars

Clouds of rain
warm rain enough
to play beneath
and chase down
muddy roads

The pools of water
drained off hi-ways
among the wild Iris
swimming alone bravely
meeting dragonflies

Like us all
I took it for granted
elixir of all life
it rolled so quickly
off our skin
now I wish it were here again.

POET'S NOTES ABOUT THE POEM
Days of my youth gone on several levels. I kept my memories vivid of small lakes created by the construction of I65 in Alabama. The weeds grew quickly and the sounds of the frogs and the crickets still ring in my ears. And a small boy can find beauty in wild flowers and multi-colored, shimmering dragonfly wings. No parent could let their small child wander off like I did back then-would they?
