At the Lake

Lake Chelan

Love comes in soft waves—or bold,
and leans in toward our shores—
keeping and staying, freeing and swaying,
ebbing—

Chasing us, when we need to be chased,
holding us, starlit, and
echoing
long
after
night falls.

An acrostic for dVerse.

Lake Chelan is a lake in central Washington and is one of my favorite places to be.  My family has done a lot of living, laughing and loving while visiting there.
