Poetry by Dan Flosi
On the other side of the lake
Scattered around the shoreline
We see dreams and dollar signs
A glint of evening light off the private lake,
And the trailing clouds tracing the sky,
Tell us ownership is a myth.
Under shady green maple leaves
Mosquitoes bite our legs.
About the Poet
Dan Flosi is an American poet and artist living in the greater Seattle metro area. He is a husband and dad. He increasingly finds himself spending his time in the forest and on trails, instead of big box stores and super malls. He has had work published in Vita Brevis, and is currently working on his manuscript.
The last two lines sew it up: this poem transcends ownership. Thanks for sewing it on the wind of Vita Brevis!
