    Love the poem and picture!
    But just to play with it a little:

    wild lake reflecting
    colors of my thoughts and dreams…
    swashing fantasies

      Hi! You’re right, the words do have a soothing quality. It was a challenge writing a poem that would be outside the box, which is what I always try to do. Thank you! I hope you’re enjoying your Saturday! 😀 xx
