Dressed for Fall

Give thanks to Him who spread out the earth 
above the waters, for His lovingkindness is everlasting. 
Psalm 136:6

The lake is feathered today
Fluttering with reflections
Weaving images of trees, clouds, sky.
Above the lake's sandy floor
With its clear-as-glass water
Like a mirror
Showing the green, shining back blue, 
Wrapped in white
Accessorized with orange and yellow, 
Accented with deep red,
And a touch of gold.
A costume fit for an October day
An embroidered sweater against the chill
Will serve until the lake dons her 
Woolly winter white snow-coat.
