Stillness of the deep

In the lake
Laying placid
Lies buried
meanings deep

Calm on the surface
Like a pretending mirror
Reflecting the fake
Hiding the truth beneath

the inquisitive finger
Scratches the surface
In a poke of inquiry
Pierces the flimsy sheath

Ripples give away
the illusion
Distorting the unreal
Revealing the truth we seek

It’s not the blue sky
Or the ochre of the woods
It’s the flow of the water
And the stillness of the deep

I am a dreamer I weave tales in my mind I am connected to you through these words through this screen across the virtual world I and my tales within
