Hammerhorn Lake

dragonfly wing
caught in a mud crack--
mountain lake

lizard sunning itself
on a swimmer's boat

over the mountain
a small cloud
and its reflection

between parted reeds
coon tracks

bleached snail shells
crunching underfoot--
a drifting waterlily

the wind dies down
to a cricket sound

a rengay by
