Thunder on the Lake

Summer's hot breath, off
the waters; Speak-
Painting evening skies with
eyes wide and blue-
Watching as the waves toss
tiny toy vessels-
Sunset promising liquid dreams;
before bidding us,

There's thunder on the lake,
as darkness falls-
Rolling; Tumbling, and the
throwing of tempers-
Friction scrapes deep;
Exposing raw fears-
The smallest of nature;

Lilypads dance; Giving a
seductive performance-
Offerings of sweet romance-
Tree frogs swoon; Owls, tentatively
pay attention-
Lovers and dreamers
take a chance

A babe in the arms of it's
Mother; Sleeps
As the thunder on the lake;
Lays down to rest-
The old man in the moon; Turned
on his light-
for all his nightly guests

Great imagery! You could be (and perhaps you already are) a successful songwriter, if you wanted to, besides being a poet.--Joe :-)

You paint a peaceful scene where the false violence of a dying storm heightens awareness of the pending night. Lovely.

Your images paint pictures upon the canvas of my soul, Lisa. Your verses transported me to that delightful place by the lake; I imagined warm kisses beneath the misty moonlight and could hear the sun beckon the sky to roll out it's diamond studded indigo velvet that the creatuers of the earth might enjoy sweet slumber. I guess what I am trying to say is that this is really excellent, Lisa.
Take care,
