Girl On A Country Lake

She is done bathing
and slips into the hillside view
where a convent drags time
through ghostly ruins of limestone.
The blue tower is mute, its bell cut down
during the war. Morning begins
with her hands wringing out
long hair, water sung
in a high, soprano shine by the sun.
The lovely painting is by French artist, Marie-France Riviere. Please visit her website at It is well worth the visit to her beautiful gallery of images.
