Leaving Leelanau


View  From  Storm  Hill


Whenever I leave this little finger of land,

I whisper to the big lake,

In my words or thoughts:

"See you next time."

We are neighbors, the lake and I, ...

But really more like friends.

And, like friends, 

We have our occasional differences.

At times, she can be irascible, brooding,

And, quite literally,

As cold as ice.

But more often,

She is a wise and soothing companion, ...

The sweet water of my life in Leelanau.

Always there.

Waiting, ...

For my return.


See You In Leelanau Up North,
Chris
