On Lake Champlain Light, water, and sky merge Clouds wash across the the blue Little wisps of white hang in space Lavendar mounds rise above forested shores Rock- covered islands appear One with a secret cove where boats Are tethered like horses in a corral. Moist breezes bring possibilities Sunshine and the drone of the boat's motor Meld I am at peace.
Barbara Ehrentreu's Questions:
1. In the first stanza I wanted to give the idea that you were looking at a
painting? Does that work?
2. I used the word, "meld", because I wanted to capture the experience of everything coming together. Should I change it to "unite" or "join"? I thought those were too common.
Please let me know.
