Memories Of Waters
As the waves of Lake Chapala
Grace the sands of Ajijic
I am reminded of distant shores of Lake Minnetonka
Memories of sailing, summer’s warm welcoming airs sending
Our small boat out into the bays.
Of Findhorn, Scotland where warm ocean currents
Send their waters to the shore.
From my hotel window in Cassis, France I see
Cobalt blue waves of the Mediterranean
Knock the boats to sides of wooden docks.
For me, Lake Superior shows off her winter artistry
Throwing up her icy waters forming spectacular sculptures.
In caves on stony beaches in Dar es Salaam I watch a
Large rusty freighter bring refugees from flooded lands of Mozambique.
Indian Ocean’s winds bring our wind powered dhow
To a crystal white sand island.
The old steamer Liemba plays her way down Lake Tanganyika
Creating a wake lapping the edges of Zaire.
All waters are beautiful in their own way.
