Sitting just beyond the shore – v3

the pen of the poet
drawing the image
the word picture,
held in his view, his vision
sitting beyond the shore
gazing out on the water
a flock of Canadian Geese
that words soon would flow
his pen moving, running
across the journal page
freed from time, convention
to slow his path, to breathe
to be centered wholly
beside the still of the lake
