Poetry from within
   

Lake Formation/Freedom


Lake Formation



Canoes strung in shape

of a Spanish Fan unfurled

cool down summer’s air



Freedom



Cast out from lake, rushing over the weir

The Vyrnwy runs pure and crystal clear

Where oak stands tall and the ash leans o’er

Deepened soul of water here runs slower



Bathing the stones, washing their face

Smoothing the pebbles in sculptured space

As on it travels tween depths of green

With rippled sound and peace pristine






Jan Hedger
