 TorRent lost 
 list
    branch
 Then remember
   Blue bouldering 
brake
 If and
  And horizon dip
  Grains of water
  Touch
    time 
- Now grown 
   River Memorial
 Feeling or shot
 put
  Solid

    The soft rock
 foot fold and lack

    - And little fur
 tiny so

 scratch whisker


 2

  Sigh then

Slipping or
   riverbank
 as

  colour fest to 
   Cone line

 outline how

  remembering

   - Peel even if irregular
 characteristic solitude
 and established red
 Taken Remembrance
 white linger


  3.

 Hill or fodder Bow 
 to Track
 up
complexion of the line
  If the lemon and lemon
  - somewhat
   and leaf
  fresh lime
    Apple haze
  Lighting now

And fire-casting
 To honey to
      Flow and odour
  Oyster shell pant
   Rolling
    Pylon line of the tree a
A rolling
   As the run
   For air 
 

 4.

You 
tight
   Water whisper comfort
  Leaf fold

smile
 Or skull dead
  lift
 Pool sea
 On the
  Gyrate

 Quick paw

 Hidden skins
 And
 deep wood scent pine

 Cracked 
a glow 
palm
 smoothed 
light linger
Pit roughness slash
For cotton sheath
Oil


 5

Branch Mediation
   From
    Weight chew
 And nibble

   Tail grey

 Through the -

 Nut 

traces regret

    The cone
And harvest wheel
Fork meadow creation
 disappointment
 Bread
- Line Sew
Distance and should
 Chestnut bend
