Lake Nicaragua

Lake Nicaragua

Blue sky reflected
           in the blue waters
of the lake
           Slow ripples of water
moving upon water
           creating rolling waves
of brilliant sunshine
           breaking gently
on the shore
           here in the lake
where we fished
           just after sunrise
before the world awoke
           before the heat rose
small fish
           with gleaming scales
created from sunlight
           fried in a pan
devoured in a flash
           and a smack of the lips
