Radiant mists draw
curtains of shadow
across the ill-defined
meetings of mountains
and cloud-clear sky.

Coots leave wakes
of blazing silver
as shards of sunlight
sparkle brilliant, fleeting
on the water.

Soft plumes of smoke
rise vertically
from cosy stoves
by the cold still lake’s
far distant shore.
