Peace, returned

Canoe believe how beautiful the sky is —

With pastel swirls and the lone paddler?

Canoe_sunset

Pinks and purples colour the lake,

Making the drops of water from the paddle glow like jewels.

Water drops

After a while, the ripples fade,

The sky grows darker and more beautiful,

And peace returns.

    I cannot help but think of this a ‘Knock Knock’ joke. The images do put a smile on my face, as well as evoking you know what -that sweet sigh. And deliciously un-urban. Better that one lives in it then to escape to it. Better to paddle through then out or around. When I see such images and places, I think star gazers are missing the big picture if you know what mean.
