WIP What Dee Sees From her Deck



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, Dee
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.
