Swan lake – with mist

A chilly morning dawned

Bringing out the colours of the leaves

And the swans.

Misty swans

They appeared out of the mist

Like feathered ships.

Feathered ships

The sun bursting through the trees

Placed stripes of light on the swan’s neck.

Swan stripes

Closer and closer the swan sailed

Beautiful in the lilac dawn.

    Like feathered ships.”
    That’s as beautiful and graceful as the swans themselves. 🙂
