Our Location Writing Group met on August 20, 2014 to do some creative writing at a beach on Okanagan Lake.
Frances, a new member of the group, created a beautiful lyrical poem which took a mystical look at the scene.
Lure of the Lake
While lime licked willows toe hold the water’s edge
And golden cheat grass carpet the hillside
Porcelain clouds hover over ponderosa pines.
I wonder, can they feel the lure of the lake
Are their eyes drawn into its sun dappled ripples
Their ears caressed by its soft soft lapping ?
Gayle focused on the many, many details she was seeing, arranging them so as to create an alphabetical look at what she was experiencing while writing at the beach.
