Song Of The Crystal: Ron Lavalette3
September 28, 2013 by northerncardinalreview
Safe the harbor here
where hardwoods creak
along the water’s edge
to kiss and mix
to measure air
and mark the water’s reach.
Safe the haven here
where streamlets, muttering,
murmur secret histories
of millrace, of millpond,
and of slightly shifted stone.
Safe safe safe
where water falls:
below the cliffstone
beneath a tree, beside a brook.
Ron Lavalette is from Barton. VT. He has been widely published both in print and online. A reasonable sample of his published work can be found at http://eggsovertokyo.blogspot.com/

I know of no better place to receive healing (and quiet poetry) than near the water. Beautiful, Ron..
