Lake Shore Art

Silver Birches cold scene

 Silver birches line the lake
bone-pale before the evergreens
shoreline a rip rap
of gnarled and twisted stumps
weathered grey – the windfall waste
of trees already sawed and burned
in winters past.

Faint melon light of sunset
quivering
refracted in the rain
of dusk and the lake’s
darkening glass.
