Flash 55 Friday


A dull gray stone
darkens as it splits
the translucent barrier
and sinks to rest on
a sandy floor. Fast
flowing concentric circles multiply
across the glassy surface
reaching out to infinity
in an amoeba like existence
of a clear blue world
only to be interrupted
by a water bug oblivious
of his untimely intrusion....

Trying to have thoughts of the lake after three days of rain and cold. We are suppose to have a break of one day before rain sets in again. Regardless of weather we have a busy weekend planned so I hope you all stay safe and dry......


  1. ha. the day is nice today..spent it at the zoo with 90 kindergartners...wore tossing stones in the water though..nice capture...

  2. Great 55er... hope you enjoy the clear days and the rainy to come as well!

  3. I guess that's motehr nature for ya. Hope you get some sun soon.

  4. A lake paints a beautiful natural picture does it not?
    What a Lovely 55 My Friend.
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  5. I stood at that lake's edge while reading your descriptive '55'...and saw that bug. How peaceful!

    We would LOVE to be wet today! Under water restrictions this past month. Severe drought! Even weeds are dying on their stalks
