The Heart Lake
From the wilderness a blue eyed woman appeared, she said she had no home, and she lived in the woods,
It was not an easy hike!
There were no indications, and the trails were falling apart.
Other hikers were also searching,
We shared paths,
An opening came up.
Maybe it is the lake we are looking for?
But surely then... It has dried up.
Should I just head back?
The afternoon was falling down,
But I was determined to reach my destination.
From the wilderness a blue eyed woman appeared,
She said she had no home, and she lived in the woods,
Her name was Kate.
She led me to the trail,
We climbed the steeps,
Crossed under some trees,
And came to see the jewel.
Held in the space of the sacred mountain,
Was the emerald Heart Lake.
