A Poem by Deborah Guzzi

A Stream of Laughter

The sunlit water frolics
over a stone-strewn base.
Chattering waters,
playfully tumbling like children
on a high hill, rolling down.

Both translucent and opaque
the blue and greens magnified
by reflection and refraction,
the silky wetness laves the colored stone,
beginning where,
ending where
I am not to know.

High mountain waters
strained of impurities by crystalline sand
purveyor of bountiful imaginings,
leave boats with twig masts
brilliant red-purple beetles
floating like lost sailors.

The sunlit waters dance
smile breeders
laughter seekers
The water falls
