Lake Double Tree

Lake-Double-Tree.

I sat for hours
and watched
in admiring silence

in front of me
one  lonely  tree
on a little  island

one lonely tree
mirrored in the lake
under a little island

I did notice
the forested hills far away
the glass lake
the blue sky


that lonely tree
conquered my heart
in its moving  
yet not isolated  way 

that was the reason
for my enduring stay
 at the border
of Lake Double Tree
