Wow, the colours in that picture are remarkable! I can see exactly how it inspired your four lines today.Mine:No hand shall mar the beautyOf this ancient desert lake.Its water is so poisonous,No thirst shall it e'er slake.
You would make the waters poisonous, wouldn't you :PNicely done :)
Yeah, sorry. The bluest waters that you see though are usually that colour because of cobalt, so they are poisonous. I know in this picture it's probably the reflection of the sky, but still....
I wrote this before I read Greg's comments on poisonous blue water ...A blue gem among sandy dunes Sky reflecting, shrub shaded, Cool water for thirsty drinkers, What a lovely desert treasure.
Greg - hah, no need to apologize. Plus, I just learned something new, so that's always good.Morganna - haha, too funny :)You provided a lovely description of the scene, I think it really enhances the affect the picture has on me.
