Béla Török – “Misty Lake”
January 11, 2011 § 1 Comment
It seems like I should be hearing a flute playing
With the wind carrying its song down past the fog and the distance
It seems like I should be shivering from the cold
Since my jacket was thoughtlessly tossed back on the mason wall
It seems like I should be upset with this serendipity—
This spontaneous wandering by this unknown lake
It seems like I should want to be somewhere else—
But somewhere else wouldn’t be half as good as this wonderland
How grand that things aren’t what “they seem” and unexpected detours
can still lead us to surprising beauty!
