I saw the cloud burst

The Daily Post prompt is: Witness.


I saw the cloud burst on the lake

And no sound make

But falling rain

Like summer grain.


I saw the water dimple-specked,

With silver flecked,

Beneath the clouds,

Outspread like shrouds.


The path you’d take by the lake’s edge,

Where wind-swept sedge

Bodes winter chill,

Is empty still.
