glimpses on a lake

A rarirty on the road:
A child walking, real

fast-paced to

catch a glimpse of the lake.

The glistening lake

that beckons him

to peer into his reflection.

Inside the satin shine, he sees

his face and trees, all

framed and trim.

A landscape in a looking-glass.

A portrait on a lake.

Delight and excite 

at the look of the lake

causes said child to

stir inside.

He runs back home,

exalted.
