this morning

it's morning here
on Lake Hamilton
i can hear birds singing
joyous songs
a dog barks
across the cove
and squirrles skitter
about the yard
the heat has begun
to settle in
the bugs are all a frenzy
for our fresh, pulsing, life-giving blood
this is summer

last night
at sunset
we could see small fish
breaking through the lake surface
defying the limitations of gravity
with hopes of a feast
the evening bug swarm
skimming just above the water.

the waxing moon graced the sky
and the swallows and bats

such is life on the lake
a beautiful dance
surrounding me.
