I’m a Speck on the Lake

I’m a Speck on the Lake

Adrift on an inner tube that’s
large and black as a serpent’s
mouth, or a ship afloat on a lake,
and I’m watching thunder clouds
growing, and blooming white.

I’m a continental drift, somewhere
between heaven and its echo.

  5. I love floating on innertubes, but there is a fear of floating out too far without a tether to place. I like the way the lens shifts from small to large.

  9. This is magical….from the first line when I’m leaning back, realizing how small I really am while looking up at the shape-shifting clouds in the immense sky to the larger realization of the continental drift…..just floating in a lake….daydreaming…..thinking about what life is really….a speck on the lake. Really enjoyed this one!
