Light on the Lake


That hour in the evening,
when magic works its way into the landscape
and shadows start to loosen into darkness,
the light on the lake becomes rare and lifted
in some mysterious way.
Trees lean inward
or so it seems
no longer afraid of their reflections,
no longer struggling with everything they have to carry.
And, for a while, at least,
there are no longer any expectations.
