Breeze over the lake

With a stretch they crunch uncrunch and gasp
while magnet ducks lulled like toys nod through
ruffled air demanding you pirouette,
there a one-two, punch-punch-swift exhale
here she levitates that cooing child
by shimmering nebula’s pebbled paths
a pair arrives like Doppler waves
performing their two-step in unison
as city’s patient ‘scape drowns horizon
revolves and all is submerged, vanished
as erratic days erupt into emptiness
leaving a single inhalation of life.
– 20 August
