The blue beyond

The spring equinox is when day and night are equally long:

A perfect balance that was reflected in the azure blue

Of open water and the white cold of the ice still left on the lake.

The blue.jpg

Even the clouds seemed to find harmony

In their own reflections.

As for that bluer than a jay’s wing sky —

All I could do was to stand and gaze in wonder.

    • It’s minus 5 C this morning, so winter is still here, but it has been warmer during the days, and we’ve had winds, so maybe that is why the ice has melted so fast.
