The Autumn lake is calm, an enveloping stillness sets the stage for a solitary bird
She moves through the air with grace, diving down to touch the reflection of heaven on the water below
Her wake a veil that parts the waters, inviting glimpses of the deep
My gaze finds its home in her rhythmic dance that rises and falls
She moves me to a quiet so complete that it seems to cradle the entire universe
There is a moment beneath a moment where even my breath seizes to move...
The image of the bird melts into the golden glow of the sun.
The lake becomes infinity's ocean and her wake joins forces with the rising tide of my heart.
