Wheels

A slight

frisson

ripples almost
imperceptibly

deep beneath
the river’s skin

forlorn
she skips a stone
across the water
hoping it won’t sink
into the slime
where fat eels lurk

stars glisten
in the warm sky
as he farewells
a floating lotus lantern
hoping for a true love
to appear

she sees a bright flame
floating in a lotus
lantern

she walks back
along the riverbank

a chance encounter

she bumps into him
and so wheels turn
again…
