A glimpse of too much time spent in Connecticut.

Candlewood Lake

by s.c.virtes


The omniscient bulk
of a rock-tumbled hill
so far off across the mirror-waves
wearing proud trunks for hair
staring down at its reflection
grooming itself for some
     date with eternity --
but everything passes
with a whisper of denial,

It will sink slowly
into the calm dissolving waters
and join its brother forgotten hills
in a final rest of mineral spirit.

=== end ===

Accepted for "Earth Realms" anthology (2001), but then the whole site vanished.

Really nice, Scott. You have a subtle eye.

Not enough time spent, it would seem. It reads like a place worth seeing and knowing and experiencing.

Very nice, but I can't really envision a hill being omniscient. Otherwise, it's quite good. Too bad about the site vanishing. That's often the case with small press magazines, be they print or electronic.

Reminds me of the North Canadian Shield. I can see that old rock cut, standing there like a memory you dropped along the way.
