I Could Live Here

No shopping malls.

No fast food take out.

No community college.

No theater.

I thought,
"I could never live here."

But then I heard the waves breaking on the shore.

saw mussel shells scattered in the grass,

and hanging moss 
glowing vivid green,
backlit by winter sunshine.

I wet my hands in ice cold
blue-green creeks,

contemplated white tree trunks
in spring-time snow,

and looked at ponds so still
that it was difficult to know
where solid ends
and the liquid world begins.

And I thought

"I could LIVE here."
