                One Tree Island 

                           holding my eye
                           she undoes her blouse
                           my strict attention
                   an arch smile
                   then photons clothe her 

                   wavelets lapping toes
                   the forest lake
                   there to receive her

                   wading out
                   till her breasts float

                   diving under
                   a flash of bare bottom

                   she waves
                   from the one tree island
                   an exaltation of larks

       in a shade of pines along the lake's edge
                  I clothe her
                  in a bikini of kisses
