The Lake, an Image and a poem by : Brian F Kirkham
Calm, Clear, Cool –
The lake lies in its hole
whilst wondering in the woods
a fisherman has a goal
Sat on a chair
by the waters, still
he casts out a line
and goes for the kill
His float bobbles in the water,
awaiting a big fish
He’s hoping for a salmon,
for a suppertime dish
Finest lures he bought – on sale
and bait he uses – he hopes – prevail
the lake, keeps hidden, the whereabouts
of the big Salmon, or Lakeland trout.
The lake it seems is calm and still,
fisherman falls asleep until –
the noise under water makes him wake…
the fish are in another part of the lake.
The weeds or stems in the lake look like someone’s signature!

Actually, rereading it, I think it’s a rather stupid comment- which I didn’t mean that way. I like the image. I was thinking I might have cropped the top so it was just blue and the reeds but then you would have had no context for the image and it wouldn’t have worked so well. So I agree with your processing decisions. And I love the mood to it. Calm and frenzied at the same time!
