Walk by the lake’s shore /
look down at iced pebbles and /
find the lake’s heartbeat
(Notes: This haiku was one of the most liked that I’ve posted on the Sharon What’s Up facebook group, and I think it’s because it’s such a striking image that leads up to the phrase “lake’s heartbeat.”
The lake becomes magical in the season most people don’t visit it — late fall and winter. Ice starts to buckle along the shore, creating amazing sculptures and patterns. And before it’s totally frozen over, the interplay with waves beneath the ice can be incredible).
