The Lake.

Such a shine,

a glimmering of rippled satin

covering the centre.

The rise and descent

of bank and bush undulates

towards a darkening horizon.

Caught between two framing trees,

just edging from the shore

a pool of puddled ink

dares look, towards

the silken sheen.

My vision drank upon

the view, as evening

blinked her eyes,

wisp's of wind

then raised a hand

and took my lake away.



Author's Notes/Comments: 

Looking into the distance from my upstairs window, the clouds set up this oasis- like view.

Have never seen that film, may do now it sounds interesting. When I saw what the clouds had made I really wished I could paint. Sue.
