Tranquil reeds and mirrored sheen,
Sunken prints where feet have been,
Feathered haven out of reach,
A wildlife wonder inland beach.
Freeze a second either way,
Mute the sound of leaves that sway,
Add the future, leave the past,
Keep sight of things you think will last.
Here’s the setting - draw a chair,
Timeless choice in monochrome share,
Clean the brushes, take the time,
Picture this perfect picture through mine.
