Sunset at Twin Lake


Anita Endrezze

Colville Indian Reservation

The heron stalks
The webbed water,
its feathers made of mirrors.

We hear the white breath
of water lilies as they float
in the cooling air.

The heron is a bringer
of reed music
legs, beak, feathers - -
all are godly instruments
in the evening wind.

Even the mountains
have a distant message
although we are more concerned
with things closer.

our hands still seeking
the last light
as we cast our lines
and the trout jumping
into the net
of the low-rising moon.
