Clouds sitting on the horizon
Flushes of greenery halfway up the slopes.
Sunshine on one fell, shadows on the next
Rocks a rainbow of slate colours:
blue, grey, brown, white, furred with lichen.
(Look up lichen on your tablet,
The wake of a passing boat rippling towards the shore.
Shining on the surface as though someone has
blown a bubble of lake. The trees lean over,
preening in their reflection.
The sun slashes a green path towards the lake
that widens like a smile.
