Poetry from Prop

lakes submerge us
in our strength of cool

soft ribboned hues
the brightest outlines
closer to the lakes
hulled by silt &
grass banks, rust
pumping pine
lengthens a granite
alignment
scattered on charity
so cool the lake
expanding limbs
your broadened foot
& toes extend, always
to an upper clear
a brighter line
from fathoms
