Ah, how moving. The power of words, Mary. Power is not only the ability to change behavior, it changes thinking. Your poem is so powerful it transmits me to the many different lakes in my life. Lakes are the squares of nature, they open our mind.
I like the acronym too. You inspire me to write about COMOTRAFT — Chris’ Own Method Of Trans France Traveling. We will see what happens.
All in all- a poem to file and reread.
