Sunset in the lake

After a long hiatus of rainlessness  the lake should dazzle under the setting sun. Camera in hand, I would try a distant view of the sun filtered through  the shore trees, the sun a ripe red fruit ,turning to ashes. The sun slowly sank under rows of buildings and a thin red streak glistened on the ripples ,where a water bird swam ,making only the gentlest of the ripples.

The fish sat in the woman’s basket ,on the bank,waiting to be sold, entirely unmindful of the gorgeous sunset.
