Poetic Thursday: Out On This Lake

Poetry day here at These Days. Pam and her ginger kitties at Two Spoiled Cats provided us this photo for inspiration for today’s poem:

And here’s my poem:

Out On This Lake

Out on this lake, I’ll make a wish;
out on this lake, it may come true.
Out on this lake, I’ll wait for a fish.
Come, sit with me, and you can wait, too.

Out on this lake, time seems to slow down.
Out on this lake, I’m a child once again.
Out on this lake on the outskirts of town,
it’s a bumpy ride down a long dirt lane.

Out on this lake is where I find peace;
out on this lake in the late afternoon.
Out on this lake, it’s catch and release
on this perfect day in the middle of June.
