Drunk Again


Drunk on love

In autumn dawn

Soaked in pastel skies

Seduced by ground fog

Gray snakes find rivers

Water rejoins water again

Subtle loops in time

Hushed visions of peace

Bigleaf maples reach

Toward pastel dawn

Forging yet another ring

More wood before sleep

Then rapt in white chill

They exhale patience

Whispered promises again

Gray geese fly home

Above color festivals

I'm drunk again and

This time on love
