"Silent Twilight"

The lake was still The world was silent Not the slightest breeze in the air The road was silent As a deserted island The only noise: A fish jumping in the water

She broke the silence Her bare feet Sending ripples Through the cool water A lily pad wiggled Water splashed A frog peaked through In the sand a log rolled over A chipmunk chattered away

A setting sun Cast an orange-red glow Onto the dark green water Like a painting Perfect A painting Just painted Still wet
