Spanish Fork River Banks, Utah Lake - Sandy Beach Moonshadow, dancing alone

Spanish Fork River and Sandy Beach, Utah Lake

He stood on the snowed /
banks of that river alone, /
cold and moon-shadowed.

AND

Dancing with moonbeams/
to the stream’s soft notes was not/
enough to hold her.

Driving my newly-washed car down a muddy Utah road to get to Sandy Beach, Utah LakeOn a cloudy Friday morning
I washed my car.
On a sunny Saturday afternoon
I drove down a muddy road
and went to the beach.

Was it worth it?

Oh yeah!
Most definitely!

Feeling Again Through Frozen Feet — I’s Just Gotsta #2: Revolutionary ImproVerse Free Verse Poem

January 17, 2015

Walking into Utah Lake and the Spanish Fork River, January, across snow and ice: tennis shoes and footprints in the river bottomThe pain
pulses
through my peds.

I can’t rememberBare feet in the sand, Utah Lake, January, Sandy Beach and the Spanish Fork River
why I stepped/
onto the ice
and snow,
then
into the gently flowing
melted
river.

Was it to prove Footprints in the river bottom mud, January, Sandy Beach, Utah Lake
that I could do it?
Was it a memory
of polar bear dips past?
Was it a beach,
and I’s just gotsta?

Or was it just/
to experience the shock
of being able/
to feel
again?
