Umbrella Path
Amy Ludwig VanDerwater


Like old stones in a river
… by one
……….these bright umbrellas
……………form a path across the water
………………..keeping people warm and dry.

But today I long to tiptoe
on the tops of each umbrella
green and orange
red and yellow
in soft silver tears of sky.

I want to dance across them
from umbrella to umbrella
pitter patter
as the people wonder why –

why they hear a sound
like footsteps
on their colorful umbrellas
as I whisper to this wet world
It is I.
It is I.
