Thursday photo prompt: Shimmer #writephoto


Sue has provided this photo to inspire us this week.
For visually challenged writers, theimage 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.
