5-minute poetry.

Turned around.

The lake curved upside down.

Just a little late

by today’s goodwill?

It ached for lengthy moons, submerged.

Beneath ripple effects, too.

Its current pulled

This way —

And that way, until one day both ends,

Ended up

Just as they are. Simply put.

Closed and finalized.

U-shaped. A little

Reminiscent of what was,

but still

possible.
