as the creek flows and buckles

’round the bend she

dangles her feet in

a universe of stars


a distorted light delves

into night corners of

a garden dampened

by evening showers


like crystals or diamonds or

perhaps mischievous fairies who

dance under the moon


she follows the creek

to the point where

the light meets the sea and

drowns in the dark


the fairies depart

another one caught by

beauty alone lured

into the depths

of her heart
