Teddy Roosevelt Park

Where Mini Crab

scurries over shells

between my steps


Where Forest

dangles her damp vines

down to my breath


Where Marsh

pulls his salt 

up to my nose


Where Egret 

flaps her wings

past me over reed rows


Where Dragon Fly

buzzes by

my ear to my knees  


Where Flying Fish

jumps up to tease me

belly flopping onto the creek

Your Florida Preserve


Wooden pillars squeak in the afternoon wind

Waters slap against the shore

Not angrily but without end


Bleached bright pier reflects the sun

Man holds his pole on a “No Fishing” sign

Like a catch would have been fun


The sky so tantalizing blue

It fools you into thinking

The water is too


The sun also plays games with your mind

Shimmering off the murk...
