717 Cedar Springs Dr
Tuttle, Oklahoma

  at the water's edge

moonbeams float
down from the darkness;
alighting softly
on the tranquil waters
of a sleepy mountain lake.

rising full
across the distance,
the broad moon beckons;
casting long, subtle shadows
from the farther wooded shore.

I am drawn like fish
to a lovely lure;
the haunting glow of heaven
dangling just outside my soul.
