In the space between moments

Well, for those of you who don't live in Minnesota or have never seen Lake Superior, I hope this gives you a good idea of what a sight it is. I visited it today, and was inspired..

Stretching placidly before me, a great pool of liquid slate,
With diamonds woven throughout frothing waves, a vision so great.
Her shimmering waters are a mirror to the soaring heavens above,
And her cooling breezes flow around, a scene that dreams are made of.

Soft mists lazily rise from distant horizons of hazy blue,
And whitened clouds float above, Columbus's sails billowing anew.
Shadows of a golden tint shift over the slightly fragrant sprays,
And her flowing voice silently sings of quieter, more serene days.

Foamy waves purge forth from the depths of her silvery soul,
Revealing ancient treasures almost forever entombed below.
Fate has been cruel to those who dare tread her water's of beauty,
An endless eternity her wrath has ripped loose for all to see.

But on this peaceful morn, our lady's spirits are calm and gentle,
And with her mildly sounding melody my soul she softly lulls.
Superior's song, a tranquil tune expanding the boundary of time,
Sends a glorifying message of love that is ever so sublime.

*Krista Knutson*

Very good! I've been to some of the other lakes and saw the majesticness of it. The lakes are surely a beauty in nature! It's too bad some of them are polluted... your writing is very good...descriptive. *smiles*
