earth note 62

khanom, thailand

let me taste the early morning light
before smoky sunrise mix
distant yellows of a coconut plume
speak seductively sweet
swallowing my words
forgetting the murky river
a charge
coming through the shadows
from who knows where
a mother answers the child's question
in the teeter of teak stilts
a balance
