'Lake Thun'

The last of the recent series of four poems inspired by paintings and photographs, written by Transition Year, is Sophie Millar's 'Lake Thun', which was prompted by Ferdinand Holler's painting of that name (click here for a large image).

'Lake Thun' by Sophie Millar

Calamity and Catastrophe
Steered far away
From the warm blue chill
Of the dawning day.
With airbrushed colours
Within shy waters,
The mountains arose
To take control.

But presumptions took the tide of doubt
And it was believed a dream,
For no life could possibly live
In this lovestruck paradise.
