Moonlight on the Lake

 


Moonlight on the Lake


the dark blue shadows
of midnight dance
with the flicker
of moonlight
on the lake

fishermen’s boats loll
gently creaking in the crisp
sheer silence of the cool water

klieg-like spotlights
crisscross the water knifing
slices of pale amber
on the surface

the “plop” of a lure
cast out into the night
the slap and splash of carp
poking the table of air

the lull of music wafting
softly across the dam
to a fisherman
—paradise
