Inspiration for "Early Fall Flooding"
The canoe slides through the water, soft ripples waving behind us. Multi-toned grasses bunch at the edge of the lake, perfectly mirrored in the smooth surface. Trees rise up, their twins sinking into the depths, each leaf replicated. The quiet slaps of our paddles echo into the morning silence like the wake of our canoe on water. The sun slips into view, splashing the clouds pastel colors, all reflected in the mirror lake surface. As the sun rises, the winds awaken, waving grasses and tree limbs, rippling the perfect reflections on the water. The moment of serene quietness slips away on the breeze.
