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!
