The Pacific Ocean leads into Lake Macquarie, near us. I was given a joy-flight, as a birthday gift, some time ago, and I was enchanted by the view.
WATERY WEDNESDAY has inspired this blog.
View the lake when on the land;
Sameness spreads on every hand.
A brilliant hue but almost bland,
View the lake from up on high!
See reflections of the sky,
Even clouds that are passing by!
Much more appealing!
How many colours can you see
From this aloft reality?
Three? Or maybe fifty-three?
All hidden treasure!
Ancient man never saw this sight;
Only birds in their soaring flight,
Saw the shallows picked-out, bright.
What a modern pleasure!
