Thursday photo prompt: Shimmer #writephoto

Sue has provided this photo to inspire us this week.
For visually challenged writers, the image shows the dark silhouette of an island in a shimmering lake, surrounded by shadowy hills. The sun is breaking out from behind the clouds in rayed splendour.

Out of the blue comes silver,
Reaching, touching shadows,
A shimmer on the horizon
Gathering and calling to the sun.
Darkness haunts inland,
Cloud cover a blanket
Stealing over glistening water
Reflecting light but not heat.
Cold and chilly,
The landscape answers,
Perhaps not out of the blue
But becoming part of it.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The light blue sky,
    Touching the dark seawater,
    At the farther of the horizontal,
    The Heaven and the Earth,
    Would share the sun, same time,
    Bring peace to the world,
    No more war and fight.

    For you Pensitivity101
