Poetry offerings from Walt McLaughlin
 

ROCK WISDOM


Flesh to dust, dust to rock --

I will sit here someday

along this brook, covered and dark and

light green with lichen and moss and feel

the vibration of a passing fisherman

stalking his trout, crouched behind me,

learning the patience, the timelessness

of being solid and unmoved.

Pagan Fishing
