Lake

Lake of Gold

Sulphur veils swirl above
The dancing molten sun
Salome waters and Herod jetty
Players in a sunset game
Where all the rules are bare
Where no one knows the stakes
Masquerade of shore and deeps
Air and earth and water meet
With fire the blending stone

  1. Marvelous wording. Especially this:
    “Salome waters and Herod jetty
    Players in a sunset game
    Where all the rules are bare”
