Silver streaks on the horizon
locked in magenta sky
reflecting w/silhouetted trees,
crescent moon & Jupiter rising.
Barred owl calls, deep in the woods.
Lily pad & pickerel weed,
spike rush & watershield
rest dark on still waters,
dark grey on dark steel.
A catbird cry joins the never-ending cricket chorus
while faintly the call of a loon
floats over from the big lake.
