Northern Lake: A Chorus of Color in Four Movements

I felt a need to re-visit this post from a few years ago. There is a magic about early morning at a lake in the north woods of Minnesota. Beyond words, actually, but one can try.

In a dim light...

— — —

Pink cloud band’s
Purple tone
Borne on liquid
Swells
Vanishes
 
Golden streak announcing
Sun rising
Clouds gathering
Sun dissolving
Gone
 
Then, faint
Faint gray
Faint gray waves
Emerging – a pulse
Morning
 
Now, pale
Yellowish-pink hues
Lake silver-blue
Calm
Nearly glass

    As you say Tom, the magic of early morning belies description, but your testimony, observing and recording the gradual change of colour and movement, to see, to be aware of, to give of yourself to the mystery, is enough, I understand.
