Black Lake

The lake
is flat as glass
a black mirror that casts
the dark world back onto itself

~gold coins
tossed carelessly into the heavens~
are fire-flies frozen
on this obsidian facade
vibrant sparks amidst echoed mountain peaks

You don't know if your footsteps will meet
with tranquil water or vast sky
till your toes find the edge
You don't know you've
step into darkness
till the ripples
the image
