Smoke suspends over

the Willamette

river like a spirit

wavers misty lights

and dark greys interplay

shapes with smooth

rolling peaks and valleys

of the water I cannot describe

the refuse drifting by

the goose honking at

whatever, noise

from the freeway

hits my body with

a shuddered shiver

shifting catatonic tranquility

to hover across nature

              then bathe your self      

                             in the breath of fire
