Glimmer

There is a stillness
by this lake,
a mist rises
from the moist earth
and spreads
along the ruined ramparts
of these city walls.

But in the darkness
shines a glimmer
of a tender place,
exposed and snagged
in the fluidity of light
and shadow.

I feel its tug
and pull, the presence
at the edges
of myself and gravity.
I know how it rides
the spirit of Horse,
the storm in its mane,
the ocean of its creation.

Soon we will riot through the waters
of resistance, soar over moons.
