The Lake Near Home

Updated on January 13, 2013


The water is smooth like glass

Here and there a tiny ripple floats by

Fishing boats dot the horizon

Powder puff clouds hover in the perfect blue sky


Trees line the shores

Like an outline of forest green

Deer come out for a drink

Though they are seldom seen


The gentle breeze lifting them easily

Overhead, birds glide on soft wing

If you lean your head and listen closely

You can often hear them sing


Two people sitting in the sun

Boat bobbing gently to and fro

Not much talking going on here

Can’t disturb the silence, you know


Peaceful and tranquil, this place close to home

We call it simply ‘the lake’

Truly beautiful ‘tis for sure

This place that He did make

      The lake sounds devine. Mother Nature at her best.

      I've recently moved and I'm only 2.2 miles from the nearest boat ramp. If there was a path thru the woods, it would be about 3/4 of a mile I think!! The lake is huge, over 400,000 sq acres. I'll be there next Saturday!!

      Tranquility at its best; lovely poem my friend! I would spend as much time there as possible. In three years I will.
