In the Eye of the Rainbow

Castle Lake, CA

The fairies leap like diamond fish,
The wind's waves drink the shore,

Turn back and forth to fish before
The mirror broken again on the stones.

This is where the wind is at home,
In this sanctuary from judgement, 

The full expression unsuppressed 
By etiquette,

Of truths cold as the water 
But as radiant and blue

And moving in every no direction 
Conceivable, ever-veiled

Like the cloud robe
That crowns the mountain,

The archangelic word too far away,
By design, to be heard ...

"It's barely a lake" returns in the ear
"It's lakely a bear."
