Mountain Charm

They did not need a rink when the lake made one for them. They did not have a coach but their skates learned to guide them. They were one with the ice as the pucks flew around them. They played in the cold while the old mountain charmed them.

A pink perch

For the flutter

A brief pause

On the fly

For the moment

That lapses

As a breath

Passes by.

One does not need a plan

To get lost

In this new town

She thought

Right before

She did.

If you come atop such

Bottled up

Glass

Be sure to not

Pass

Such opportune

Moment

For an impromptu

Dance class.

“Come.” She said. She pulled him up and dried his face with the edge of her best dress.

“Away.” Her voice was soft but hard. “We’ll be miles from here by the time he wakes up.”

A basalt creek after the rain

Where mountains spewed onto the plain

Cold lava rock there still remains

The base for what’ll grow again.

Six words are not quite enough

For me who lengthy rhymes adore

So instead of words to doff

I’ll celebrate with six times four.

Did Aladdin forget you

On the shore

Of this lake,

Or did he just land

For a quick dip

To take?
