The Mirrored Lake

This placid lake mirrors my inner thoughts, yet all around the woods are fraught, with life abundant, vibrant and wild - calling to my sleeping child. How like myself this aqua wonder,  Serene to view - yet deep down under - lies those things which make it so alive, the telling of time its only tithe. I could equate these living beings,  each one a tale of experienced things; to rascals and rabbits, rabble and rodent - my child awakens to dreams so potent. I behold a tower deep in the blue,  and know this lake as if anew. It has the strength of my deepest desire, potable passion on a potentiate pyre. My love serves me as the tower of the lake. He arrests the waters, and subdues the quake. Without the tower the lake would die  as sure as I would die inside. The willows would sway to a keening wail if empty shore should heart impale. For now, it's there protecting me. How like my life this lake can be.
