Japanese Garden, Portland Oregon 10.12

Japanese Garden

Suspended on air,
skippers prick the pond’s
surface with four toes. 

Scattered by a shadow,
they glide, first one
then two, and six. 

Under the reflection
of Western Hemlock
and white jet spray,

a school of koi,
orange and fleshy,
follow the leader

amidst the tail flicks. 
Sand rises in agitated tufts
to settle in ridges.
by A. M. Adams
