elemental joy

July’s sticky heat

creates the opportunity

to merge with

the wandering, blue alpine puddle

ringed by pines,

tended by mountains

still marked with

winter’s snows.

cold, clear, ripples of joy

spread out

from the person

imagining herself as fish

surrounded by

the tingling cold

reaching deep

into her core.

she stays immersed

in the elegance of wild

until the shivers

overtake her deep desire for

the pure pleasure

of melding with

the elemental

reality of life.
