inside the blue line

wendy loves this place
 do you see my girl?
she made two HUGE leaps, the kind i haven't seen 
her attempt for a year
since her diagnosos she has trouble 
jumping into the car.
it was a cool day, the water very cold
 i love this hemlock's new architecture

 i can look at it all day
 soon it will become the forest floor again
 two 13 year old dogs 
and their people walked into lampson's falls
 water is very low
 coal in the thin november light
 steep falls,
sometimes deadly
roots for saturday
