Like molten metal

North woods of Minnesota
Deep red-orange rising sun
Shining through the effect
Of Canada’s wildfires

Reflecting a gray sky
The lake below is calm
On the surface comes a disturbance
A boat’s wake
Catches the sun’s iridescence
And for a moment
Like a fluorescent orange molten metal
The rays are stirred into
Slate gray water

    I suppose the smoke was a tad thicker up there. Beautiful picture of words. Thx

    All is as it should be.
