Throwing Pitch Across The Water

As you trace and track by sun and moon,
watch the time and currents.

Wave upon lap and slow-downed flavors – reminder
of trees out west, plants above a knee; sniff and snuff;
browned nose.

The track toward calling an end – hastens the light
is closing home so give it time.

Wave the leaves away from eyes and reveal my soil;
the footprints you stepped.

Track the moon, the light of persons who
gently fade before.

Watch cautiously down the fish eyed trails and
make song, throwing pitch across the water.
