the water is cold and quick

the bend in the brook

reveals the undercut bank

the gold brown sand and stones

the miniature log jam

causes the spring current

to eddy

iridescent bubbles in the foam

glisten in the late morning light

while the speckled side of a trout

reveals itself briefly

and is gone
