ripples on the surface

scatter like a swarm,

shimmer like the fireworks

as they're taking form


wobbly bulge of water

summoning the waves,

rises in the center

and reveals a face.


from the lake emerges

gorgeous merwoman

shining, chin to shoulders,

bathing in the sun.


lips and cheeks in blossom

full of beaut and glee

radiate with freedom

and call out to me
