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!

Sometimes it only takes a “lakeside view” to help catch a breath…

Solitude is waiting for you with open arms,
You just need to find a place of serenity and take a retreat from life.

A place of seclusion, where you can regroup and replenish…
Letting waters of refreshment pour over you…washing away “life’s demands.”
