The Lake

Nature Around Us

In the early morning

The emerald water is so tranquil.

All life is quiescent.

Not a ripple in sight.

The current leisurely progressing

Unobserved down stream  

To a pre-ordained destination.

Why does it make this daily journey?

We do not know.

  It’s a never-ending cycle of existence.

Life concealed beneath its murky depths.

Waiting to leap to the surface, in time.

The sun rises and

Spreads its golden fingers of warmth

Across the surface of the river.

Waking up life, colors and sounds.

Signaling all life to commence.
