“The surface of the water, toward the sun, reflecting the light with different degrees of brilliancy is very exhilarating…” — Henry David Thoreau, April, 13 1854

This long contented sigh 

escapes as we turn 

the corner and the small 

pond comes into full view.

There is just something 

about water that both calms 

and exhilarates the soul.  

This little nook of nature

sits a few feet from asphalt

and urban concrete 

that connects 

building to building, 

but nestled in this haven, 

we find solace in the simple 

pleasure of watching light 

dancing upon water.
