66. I Love ... our pond

I need to live by water.

I grew up by a creek
I grew up AT the creek.

Our years in Ellice tonship were dry.
out there in the middle of a flat field.
At the top of the agenda for moving
was that there had to be water
and some roll to the land.

The little brook
was a start.
Not enough though.
I needed more.

We put the pond in a spot
that looks like it has
always
been there.
It a natural thing.

Natural for all the things
that are drawn to it.
The birds.
The frogs.
The kids.
Me.

So much life in a tiny, tiny spot.
