To the lady dragging a long blue stick through the water at the lake

  1. I know not of that which you seek with your stick; I admire your determination
  2. I am barefoot and you are wearing socks and sandals
  3. We both wear red shirts
  4. A dog barks in the distance yet neither of us are disturbed by it
  5. You disappear behind a tree.
  6. And reemerge with a watering can
  7. Will you water the water?
  8. You have disappeared; gone back up to your house I suppose
  9. I feel a small sense of loss
  10. Wait.
  11. You and your watering can are back
  12. We are on opposite banks
  13. I sit in sand; you stand in dirt
  14. We do not speak
  15. We share this lake
  16. We share this moment
