THE SUMMER’S PICTURE

THE SUMMER’S PICTURE – AFTER A SWIM

A little tarn in Nordmarka (north of Oslo)lies clear and calm before me.

White lilies, mixed with long stemmed, yellow flowers complete the beauty of the water while the Sun shares light encouraging the summer’s bloom of abundance.

But the sky behind me is darkened, exploding fury in sharp and sudden bursts of thunder.

The Sun makes nothing of it, just goes on sharing its rays with falling raindrops dancing on the tarn’s still surface – creating small circles mixing with other circles.

The water top is changed to a star-studded heaven! And it just goes on and on…

When did I ever see anything like it? No memory comes at hand; have my eyes been too tightly closed?

The threatening sound of thunder gets closer.  Filled with wonder I go home.
