Stopping by the Lake

Landscape.MotiJheel.

Stopping by the lake 

on a breezy, cloudish morning, 

I stood wondering –

What is it, that

makes a landscape so

beautiful, captivating? 

Pondered I well and deep,

running my eyes over the entire scene,

scanning thoroughly –

the outcast sky, the large silhouette

of the nearby tree, the bits and patches

of filtered light, the lake surface

all studded with tiny wavelets

made by a mild, gentle breeze,

and so on, trying to figure out

what really makes a landscape

so beautiful, captivating?    

Any guesses?  Well, to me it seems,

it’s your eye, your perception,

b’cause ‘beauty, they say,

lies in the eyes of the beholder.’

If you have an eye for beauty,

the landscape…world is a beautiful place!
