A Verse: Photos of Lake Waubesa and the Yahara River by Anita Klumpers




A Hunt for the Hidden

 by Lori Lipsky


Search down the river

Gaze across the lake

Up in green treetops

Out on a branch

Hunt for the hidden

On the rocks, in the sky

Unexpected beauty

 Passes by





Anita Klumpers is guest photographer on my blog today. Friend Anita and I belong to the same book club. She was also on the boat ride discussed in the last post.


I've used some of her photos from our book club boat ride to illustrate my poem. 


You'll recall we climbed on the boat at Sue F.'s place. Our journey took us across Lake Waubesa, across Upper Mud Lake, and to the Yahara River. We went down the Yahara River awhile until we arrived at our destination, the Bourbon Street Grille, where we enjoyed lunch together. Anita took these pictures along the way. Marvelous!

More of Anita's photos here tomorrow. Or go to http://theprudedisapproves.blogspot.com/ and see them everyday on her blog. She's witty, she's clever and she's a prude (in the nicest sense of the word).

Have a great Monday!
