A Summers' Day in Florida

The lake shimmers in the early breeze Dancing rivulets of light kissed by the rising sun, Reflecting passing clouds hopscotching with such ease It heralds a new day just now begun. Observing its environs with majestic grace An Ibis meanders daintily along waters’ edge, Confident in its prowess to outpace Its curved bill natures’ dancing dredge. A ripple breaks the perfect glass A little beak emerges from the deep, Imbued with curiosity and sass The snapping turtle juts its head to peep. All the while majestic palms sway to and fro Their fronds fanning summers’ air, From high the watch the mornings’ show Shielding those below from radiant glare. A perfect harmony of sights and sounds It bathes the soul, lightens the heart, Natures’ beauty truly knows no bounds Of which we we’re blessed to form a tiny part.
