Fresh and fragrant, the gentle breeze off the lake
Envelops me like an old friend
Enticing me like a temptress
To the quiet beach where shadows still linger!
There’s barely a ripple on the lake
Where reflections of dawn mesmerize
And yet, a soft hiss against the shore
Whispers good morning!
The sky, intermingled shades of cerise
Painted upon feathery clouds
Against warm powder blue…
A magnificent heavenly vista!
And I am a willing captive of the dawn!
My soul overflows with serenity
My heart soars with hope
And my eyes are spellbound
By nature’s incredible gifts!
