REFLECTIONS DURING A DAY AT THE LAKE




I was on retreat this weekend.  I stilled my busy life and pondered life.  I slowed my mind and began to observe the changes of the lake over the course of the day.  The haikus below were written during various changes of the lake across that day.

Sleepy lake awakes—
Fog haze leaves as sun cracks through.
Clarity beckons.

Diamonds dance on sea—
Be with me, sparkles summon.
Ring of Love offered.



Silently, I walk.
Waves meet me with rippling song.
I sing with the sea.

Stone skims sea’s surface
I stare through fractured water
To the rock sea floor
