This tiny lake house near the lagoon–
One to protect the heart,
Two to crinkle the nose
For a barefoot dweller’s inner Zen.
Let us go skinny dipping for inner zest.
Bonfire nights, sunset boulevards,
Big-eyed boys wearing their souls on their trunks
While lies lay astray
In this tiny lake house near the lagoon.
The caressing wind starts to fade away,
Bottom feeders and silent witnesses –
Big dipper standing barefaced
Wondering like a lonely cloud,
Bonfire nights and sunset boulevards.
