the lake

I see you in me
sky, tree, blue and green
reflected in the still lake
well rested in a chill space
the sun radiates it’s peace
love’s hum wakes me, breaks me free
love’s the name, two friends now mates
what a way to spend our days
the lake’s release is sweet
on days the heat is near
find me through the trees, I’m here
I see you in me, my dear

About the Author: I have a B.A. in Honours Religious Studies from the University of Waterloo and I love all major world religions – Eastern, Western, or in between. I’m genderqueer, and I’m comfortable with male, neutral, and female pronouns. I’m married to my dear wife Lynn, who is the love of my life, my best friend, and my muse. I think far too much, and often have too many ideas to know what to do with. And I am a doing being, just like you!
