NEW YEARS DAY I SEE THE SWAN

 

I see the swan~

On the lake~

Just beyond the ice edge~

Nestled still and soft.

 

The snow fresh~

Sprinkled white~

Dapples the shore~

Less as it reaches the~

Feathery fir trees height.

 

A reflection bright~

Clear as glass~

Stops by the frosted edge~

 Of colder solid dampened ice~

Light and shear with no life.

 

The snow continues to fall~

As my footsteps ruffle~

 Scattering fluffy white powder.

 

I peer to see closer the swan~

Pondering what he does~

Wondering what I will do?

 

I turn in the cold~

With the hint of the sun~

Slipping now down~

Engulfed by darkened~

Tree tops.

 

A chill drives me back~

To the warmth~

As the landscape~

Peaceful is beauty rich.

 

I see the swan~

On the lake~

Just beyond the ice edge~

Nestled still and soft.

What a way to start the new year. thanks heaps mate. good set of images as always. In fact the narrative of the images is always enough. It is the words that add the bubbles to the champagne.
