The lake looks plain in the morning

Weather forecast is for big rain in Westland so this afternoon we might not get to see wide views when we walk to Fox Glacier. But I am looking forward to it and don’t mind the wind and the rain. We get used to the West Coast chill walking on the beach in the morning whatever the weather.

Lake Matheson

The lake looks plain in the morning,
mist and drizzle and smudgy grey
like it’s wearing it’s everyday clothes

but if I come back another day
when the sun shines bright
the lake might startle us
with her dazzling mountain reflections.

A fantail dances around me as
I walk back along the track.
