Lakeside

Sitting by the water at the end of the day
I closed my eyes for awhile
Thinking of how time was passing by
Not noticed by the rank and file
Of a society living life as best they might
With what seems like the speed of light
And here am I sat at the waterside
As yet another day is turning to night
The water flowing by in solemnity
Not a trace of wind in the air
I’m now embraced by tranquillity
Without a worry or care
On the horizon the trees unmoving
As another glance I take
At a sky ablaze with colour
Reflecting magnificence on the lake
Shades can be seen of many a hue
As tho displayed on an Artist’s canvas
Burnt Red , Amber and Blue
A wondrous scene before my eyes
Tinged with streams of gold
Witnessing another of Mother Nature’s miracles
A glorious sunset to behold
