First Day

First Day


sun on the water

brown with sand

churned up from some distant storm

these lakes

this lake

is vast and long

joined to the eastern sea

through trails of shining water

she rests on layers

and layers of sand



carried from the north

in chunks of ice

over time as vast

and long

as the distance

to walk and paddle

to the eastern sea
