dead in the water
spring's come to the lake at last i see water instead of ice and though the trees aren't leafed out and the beach grass is still brown it will soon be set right the sun will see to that
but the sun can't cure the lake with the stony shallows you can't see the treacherously cold water even after weeks of fair winds and summer heat
only a grizzly or some other creaturewith plenty of padding and the strength of ten men could enjoy immersion in that wintry womb so silently deceptive so beautifully blue so frigid
if the lake were a person it would be the one you can't resist for all kinds of reasons the one you undress for inside and out the one you dive into without thinking just because they're so damn beautiful
but there's no sun in that soul no warmth in that heart and sooner or later too exhausted to move you find yourself lying bruised and broken turning blue in shallow water ~ copyright 2017 RC deWinter
The dawn sky is unpredictable - will the sun shine? - in this early spring view of the shore of Lake Superior in rural Minnesota.
