Summertime at Lake Caumont

At the end of a hot day, we take a walk around the lake. Here it is cool, and calm. We can quieten body and mind, and just watch..

Fingers dip into cool, green water
touching tenderly reflection.

Sitting stillness on a stalk
are wings iridescent midnight
glistening space eyes watching,
then suddenly
erratic darting of dragonfly

Penetrate deep pools
see pondering pikes
wallow in still waters.

A spring rises upstream, and trickles into the dammed lake of Caumont. It was constructed many years ago by a local landowner who wanted to stock fish for fishing. A boat house reminisces on times past when he tied boats for the master. Today it is public domain for walkers, picnickers, and fishermen.
