Forgotten Lake

Sunset is a quilt of fire
as mosquitoes skitter
in random flight, dashing
onto lake’s mirror of
reflecting light

bat movements upon a
summer night
dance in patterns of
fluttering delight.

The forest is a visiting
silhouette, our tent nearby.

Bullfrogs burp, loons lament
coyotes howl, each
a part of Nature’s menu.

Owls add hooting, deer call
and rabbits scamper
in clusters of movement.

The land is alive with
motion, and campers dream
within this feasting.
