Dan Hanosh’s The Moon Also Rises
dreams to come and thoughts of tomorrow

Star Lake

Walking upward, toward the sky,
ever so slowly, I ascended the hill,
below, lie the most beautiful vision
I have ever gazed upon, a lake.

It’s blue water glistening, sun rays
transforming a hue of the bluest of blues,
blending into the azure of the sky,
broken only by the lime green of the
tree line, north woods pines.

A warm breeze blows,
scurrying over the grass covering the hill,
bending the golden wheat, breaking, reflections
of the sun as it crosses the silent surface
of the lake, it’s contour, appearing
to go on forever.

Many times, I have sat there,
gazing over the dark gray water, it’s
churning white caps, raging, from being
mistreated, trees swaying, watching the pelting
rain as it crosses the bay, the sun’s warmth lost
in battle with the cold of a passing cloud,
darkness descends, allowing the stars
to touch the waters of the lake.

With daylight, humming birds ascend,
flying sorties, attacking feeders, frenzied
abandonment, Loons calling, continuously,
a message of love, Eagles perching, high over head,
watching over the bay, shoulder to shoulder,
Chipmunks scurrying, mouths full, Otters playing
in the shallow water of the Islands.

With night comes large predator fish,
patrolling the waters, searching, for unwitting
victims, Star Lake, it’s beauty, constantly,
reminding me of a humility, pulling me,
back, time after time,
year after year.
