Lake Effect

I breathe in blue.
This hue imbues
my lungs, my tongue,
my very skin.

Lashes fringed in fir,
soul stirs along
Lake’s looking glass,
sleeps sound in sand.

Wave’s lullaby
this shore-shone sigh
echoes my quiet heart,
pebbled with promise.

    Gorgeous photo, beautiful poem… I love the way you use rhyme (and alliteration too) in a way that surprises and delights me:

    I breathe in blue.
    This hue imbues
    my lungs, my tongue,

    Lashes fringed in fir,

    Well done!

  10. I found this a most beautiful self-contained piece: each stanza a perfection part of the whole.

  11. Very nice verse in blue…I like the pebbled promise ~ Thanks for sharing your talent with RT ~

    I am a fan of the poetry that has resulted form this challenge….and I am a fan of this one as well. That second stanza reads aloud so beautifully…I read it aloud like three times. Great work.
