Rain Lake Revival

I want to bathe you at Rain Lake
with your back arched
lili pads around your torso
Tom Thomson cabin in the background

If
in the pasts future, he had seen you like this~

(and in the change of artwork)

your hands over your head
this under water memory debris
canoes travelling toward the mouth
(leaving public domain for my private viewing)
this mind wishing for a second chance at
vacation in Algonquin~

you rise up onto the dock
and from the cabin deck i watch
put my book down
and walk towards your

reality
