Moment of creation is
Always ideation, progress,
Succession of  futures,
Falling stars and heartbeats.
By gain and retreat we 
Define time over real, unreal
And climb what is revealed.

Camanche Lake 1969

I remember it as though
It was only 50 years ago
Instead of half a century.
She and I adventured at
A convergence in history--
Three counties, Amador, 
Calaveras, San Joaquin,
Camanche among & between,
Where our state came to
Mean gardens and old
Dreams of vineyards, gold,
Then hopes for those 
With swimmers' bodies
Rose between our yard-long
Arms and she took a photo.
Why? I still don't know.
