Sky and Water

Come down and kiss me the river said

Lay your light beams across my bed.

The sun responded, sending out low

Radiant light across the flow.

Then I saw it, river and sky
Mirrored reflection as I passed by

Ripples of water challenged the sun

Breaking the pattern, then back into one.

The colours and shadows, mingled and drifted
At once a clear pattern, then suddenly shifted

As I watched it happen, My Spirits were lifted.

It did not last long, I suppose for an hour
Before clouds reappeared and it broke in a shower.

It made no difference, for there I could see

the pattern of sky, merging in with the sea.

The colours had changed, the view rearranged

But nevertheless, it still thrilled me!
