Bright Shadows

author’s note:

Since hair is a metaphor...

...even with your short locks, you can sail me to that place.


The way her hair
spills down
the porch steps

to spread across the lake...

sails me to that place
where the far shore meets the trees--
that secret border where
glittering water sprites converse
with the shades of the forest...
