The eternal contrast.
|Blue Skies But Dark Water
For a while it was just
blue skies but dark water.
Light and dark, adjacent.
The granite ranges around
shadowed the clear water.
The lake, like a fear-filled
mind lost its translucence.
Moments later, lo! The self-same lake
sparkled silver, a serene spring of joy
as a soft mantle of moonlight enveloped
the hills, the lake, and the world beyond.
The dark night turned effulgent
under the masterly stoke of
of a Supreme artist dispelling
fear, doubt and dreary ignorance.
