the calm of the lake…

Standing on the dock with a cup of chai watching my daughters fish this morning brought to mind the calm of the lake…
Sitting on the deck watching the sun burn of the morning mist and shorten the shadows dancing on the water brought to mind the calm of the lake…
Seeing a family of swans lazily swim past the girls’ fishing lines out for their morning breakfast forage brought to mind the calm of the lake…
Surrounding myself with the early morning symphony of birds, insects, waves and ducks brought to mind the calm of the lake…

… on weekdays when the weekenders are still at work and the tourists haven’t arrived yet, there is a calm that surrounds the lake….

A calm that cools the hot heart and speaks to the frazzled mind… 
A calm that permeates the skin and settles deep into the soul…
A calm that draws one in and takes one’s breath away…
…all at the same time…
…the calm of the lake.

I'd love to know what you think...
