The subtle joy of the simple flow of water over the smooth rocks

It is just

A simple



But I like it

Like the touch

Of the wind

That extends

Over the two of us

When we lie down

On the beach

It’s not extraordinary

But I like it

It is the simple things

You do

That I look forward to

The words you write

That mean so much

So far away

Nothing exchanged

But I like it

I know

That life goes on

And we have to be apart

But we don’t have to stop


Each other

And supporting

Each other

It’s not much at all

But I like it

So let the water fall

On both of us

At this



And I will pretend

You are with me


To the quiet sounds

Right here

At this waterfall

I can dream

Of us

In swimsuits

Getting warmed

By the sun

You, in your

Pink bikini

Yes, I like it

I like

This wonderful
