time flows like water in a stream
never the same hours or days but
the landscape still remains the same
thus masking the years pushing by

on this Memorial Monday
smoke from cookout fires and early
July 4th rockets drifts lazy
on a flag waving breeze

and insist I’m awake deadpan

west upriver dimpling the water
just enough to become a prism
scattering sunlight through green leaves
