    just a touch of zen


    Crystal clear, invisible waters
    reflect tall, green pines,
    heavenly skies, and all we see.
    The empty boat rests,
    the bow on the shore,
    the stern in the lake,
    ready to go to the other shore where
    crystal clear, invisible waters
    reflect tall, green pines,
    heavenly skies, and all we see.
