Posting these poems every week is giving me lots of different ways of thinking about the lake, and I’m loving it. I hope all of you out in the world wide web are enjoying them too! Happy Thursday!
This week’s poem is by Katie Mumford:
The lake is very big and cold.
It screams power and intensity with its
roaring waves and crashing thunder
My strength comes from within, solely and fully
even in my darkest times and weary hours
there’s always a way to pull that strength
from within the depths of my sore and
I am connected to this lake
all its power, attitude, beauty,
I am connected to the memories
that connect me back to people
which connect me to myself.
My strength comes from within
It comes from the lake
The lake is Superior.
