.......The Light At Miller's Pond - Poem by elysabeth faslund

Falling. Falling.
Late water hyacinth petals
Pink-plop lazy stilled
Mirrors.
Minnows-red tails
Swaying-swaying
Willow-shaded
Warm shallows.

Late summer cloud-
Plumps
And the sky is sticky-
Plum sweet as
Children lean into Fall,
Dream into sleep,
Sleep into years...

Falling. Falling.
Bundling purples,
Pinks, reds, greens
Into pages of pressed
Memories.
