Warm Ochre and Muted Sage

Sunlight painted glossy ribbons in warm ochre and muted sage ripplings in soft pastel hues across the surface of a tranquil lake Between cane reeds they swam silken threads on the breakfast table of a lone Indigo heron standing with feathers and plume feeding at the break of day

I liked the scene too, John, and many of the words for this write instantly came to mind. With sincere thanks.

Thanks for the compliment on the write, but I can't take credit for the painting. Jan knows it could've been because she's seen several of mine, but this was created by Michelle Held.

Thanks a lot, Dale. Sometimes I get caught up in rhyme but free verse is more adaptable to story telling.

Thanks, Jan. It's not mine but you know it's my style. It's a recent contest winner by Michelle Held.
