Magic Mirror

Sky reflected in wetlands

“Mirror, Mirror, shining bright,
in that river to my right,
who’s the fairest in the land?”
River winked at Meadowland:
“You are, fairest lady Sky,
“whether you are wet or dry.”

“Best to keep her happy, dear,
else we’ll dry to dust this year,”
Meadowland agreed with River.
Then Cherry Tree gave a shiver:
“Silence, she might hear you, fools,
you know it’s Lady Sky that rules.”

  1. How On Earth you captured this heavenly reflection was a blessing to us all, Brenda! ♡ Outstanding photographic serendipity. Your words are equally lovely and vivid. That “Lady Sky” is so vain and fickle. 🙂


  2. Did you hear we are supposed to get hit with the worst el nino rains this fall/winter? It could send the drought destroyed state slipping into the sea, so I think it is well to be nice to Sky~
