Mountain in the Water

Mountain and reflection at lake

On the lake,
a mountain.

A reflection
never mistaken for
the original.

Yet, you count
ripples in the water
and forget
who I am.

  1. Potent. I have to agree that your endings always seem to suit the piece perfectly, and let the reader wander off with a new thought in their head. Wonderful composition, thank you for this.
