The view from Lummi Island ~ photo by Luther Allen

deep evening
front moves in

clouds the color of slate
          water the color of clouds
                    sky the color of water
                              leaves the color of sky
                                        eyes the color of leaves

the color of slate
          the smell of slate
                    the taste of slate
                              the sound of slate
