Whispers of Waldo Lake

Some memories have timid souls
and need to be protected so
they hide high in the mountains
beneath the waters of the lake
clear and cold and blue
hoping you will find them one day
when you come with your canoes
and kayaks and plans for great adventure

But only after you are exhausted
your body tired
your mind drowsy
and it is safe
late in the afternoon
when the wind is calm
and the waters still
and you are brave
may they chance to share their whispers
