KAREN R. SPRINGER
DIAZ CREEK

I sit on my dock where the silence of the marsh Is only breached by the harsh strident screech of gulls; While my soul is lulled by the bawdy brackish water that lingers To invade each candid crevice of my wading fingers; So reluctant to dismiss its languid liquid kiss That lays me and sways me Cosmic deep as post orgasmic sleep. No more to life than this: My marsh and me. And the muskrat’s wake as it paddles through the reeds To its hogan hutch making Lilliputian waves Where the egret feeds on minnows in the weeds The salty rippling rug as they hover. While the potent pungent breeze Brings me to my knees With primordial perfume, Musky as the womb/ humid on my skin Insinuating/inseminating deep within My secret places Leaving me flush-faced as a lover. Dead crab belly up Fretful quacking of a mother duck With her downy brown babies Snapping turtle, heron black Red hot sun upon my back; Ebb and flow of life and tide From Diaz Creek to ocean wide Stones and snails, oak and pine Mud and mussels, muck and mind; Then calls the world for it is time. The ecstasy is over. You are my marsh. Oh beautiful liaison, We will tryst again.
