An answer in the lake

Clouds lay heavy over the lake, just at sunset. When I looked at the photograph on my computer, I realized it was like a sky sandwich, gold-tipped clouds framed by hills and sky. I liked that so posted it to Facebook.

One of my favourite writers, the very gifted Marilyn Raymond (examples of whose exquisite poems are sprinkled throughout this blog), weighed in with a haiku that made me sit up straight and say, “Yes!” She has given permission for me to post it here.


sunlight glints under
     grey evening sky and shines on
          the lake like an answer

    except I should have said ‘evening sky’ rats. It is a beautiful picture. We’re so lucky to live where we do. I appreciate your photographs, they make me feel connected to home in a very warming way.

    Now it says ‘evening sky’. 🙂 And thank you so much, Marilyn.
