By the Lake

By Laura Zucca-Scott

When you are by the lake,

Do you see the future?

Ripples in time

Hiding in tranquil waters

Or do you see the past,

When friendship


And days were forever

Will you see me?

Smiling in the sun

Before the fish runs…

    So simple, and yet so poignant. I love the line “Or do you see the past/When friendship/Mattered.”
