Lake Effect

Seen but not seen
murmuring waters whisper
over the wind

Over the horizon
waves caress the beach
pas de deux, sand and water

Head lifts, eyes emerge
nose up into the breeze
sensing a heartbeat

Grayish pearl of the sun
breaks through the clouds
hands pressing chest

Drumbeats pounding inside
a cage of flesh and bone,
calling love home
