Maine Lake


 Being by a Maine lake 
on a breezy August day is beautiful, yes.
But the movement of rippling water,
dancing leaves & clouds shifting
also fills the body & soul with great energy.

Being by a Maine lake
on a cloudy August day 
makes you want to run & shout & swim & twirl,
the way you did when you were a child.

  5. See, not just me. Strong 'breeze' was the operable word for yesterday. Like your work. Partial to miniatures too.
