An evening’s leisure…

. . . . . . . . A salty summer rain drops full on hidden train tracks, as the sun sets slow a horizon that glows redly, the day wanes close when the night strides across the sky.

. . . . . . . . Shaggy black fur bedraggled dog lumbers along after, her claws clomp in soggy stomping and scrape over the gray rocks and sodden wood crosswise, her sniffles and hot breath brush my bare legs when stopping to sit and press ear to the rail.

. . . . . . . . Fragrant kudzu and brambles curve crimson trails over naked sunburnt flesh, the insects hum curiosity and gorge themselves on hot blood, in the growing moon glow the water undulates and wavers in hues of violet and blue.

. . . . . . . . Plunging deep into the water, legs tangle around vines and deep drowned branches of long-forgotten trees, rising up with back arched a quick carp swims by with silver skin glorious glittering in the rising light of night.

. . . . . . . . Arms outward and gliding, the cares of day and gravity disperse in low long exhales, my eyes close and I sink languid into the water.
