Qi Xia Lake
Author:   Hit: 15 Time: 2014-07-27

Encircling hills
Hold the lake in their embrace
Protecting, replenishing
The nurturing waters below

  

The branches of Weeping Willows dance
With the movement of the afternoon’s breezes
Wind-rippled waters
Move lazily toward its shores

  

The scent of flowers
Perfumes the languid air
Enriching the hearts and spirits
Of the students passing by unaware

  

While the lake’s waters flow by
Fish leap for hatching flies
As do, also, the swift blue swallows from the sky,
While secretive frogs croak questions for a mate’s reply

  

The sun’s ball goes down;
Clouds reflecting its sublime palette of light
When dusk’s shadows descend, magical colors
Shine skyward in a dance of otherworldly delight

  

With evening’s darkness,
Drum beats and sharp slapping sounds reveal
Dragon boat racers in fast rhythmic cadence
And skateboarders jumping high and crashing down

  

When night’s blue deepens to indigo,
And nature’s silence thickens
Quiet murmurs and laughter
Carry the sounds of intimacy from the hill of hidden mysteries

  

After all the classes end,
And the library closes it doors
There is only the lake’s dark still presence
And the pregnant waiting for new life, tomorrow
