CATH VIDLER

                    Agog


 
Rocks and more rocks
     in bloom
on the stream bed.
 
(or stones, smoother,
     yet hard as a rock)
 
The stream is so clear I can see them
     all
     in the tickling wind of the water,
laughing their slow belly-laughs.
 
From the edge of this well
     defined stream,
     streaming like a teeming streamer
I see them,
 
all these stones,
peering up,
     agog,
 
at a scintillating blue ocean
of sky.
