Cliché

On my hand I smell woodsmoke
Don’t know where it came from.
The evening is silent, the river still
The shore opposite is a dark silhouette
Behind other silhouettes.

On my other hand I smell strawberries
From supper, still there even though
I have washed twice.
The silence is canvas-bestowing:
I am Lismer viewing dusk
For the first and millionth time.
