The Lake

The water in the lake today ,looks unusually calm.
But black clouds, are gathering at a fast pace.
Is it a lull before the storm?

The lake reflects the colors ,the sky adorns.
Be it grey or black or blue.
Mirroring the shades, of the surrounding trees.
At times it looks a tad greenish too.

Ever so often, it carries gentle waves.
As though it sings, the tunes of the breeze.
It’s presence ,inconspicuous among the dense trees, as there it silently lies.
It’s being ,a soothing sight for tired and weary eyes.

Many a sunsets, it has witnessed and also the amazing sunrise.
This lake is unassumingly beautiful, serene .
It’s never fails to mesmerize..!
