Read introduction

A beautiful mountain lake south of Munich - my winter visit was part of my recovery from PTSD.

Schliersee

Each pine tree is meticulously painted
By Caspar David Friedrich.
They march up the flanks of the Wendelstein
All the way to heaven.

The mirror calm Schliersee is very cold, but not yet freezing.
The lakeshore branches dip into the water,
And delicate beards of icicles drape to
The steel blue, welding one element to another.
