  1. That is one incredible photo. It probably took a million years to create this magnificent sight. Ahhhh the power of the universe. Beautiful poem Teresa. I love the thought of cooling the feet in ancient waters. A long time ago I was living on a beautiful metro lake. A lover of mine visited and wanted to cool her feet in the lake as darkness fell. She then asked me to go get some shampoo. When I returned she was naked and in water up to her waist. She asked me to bring the shampoo to her. And I did.

    1. It's a beautiful place and makes for some fine hiking. The road there is a stunning drive.

      Harriet? Minnetonka? Lake of the Isles? Mmmm ??? :))) Watch it, you're giving me material for another poem... :) What a lovely memory... Lucky Lady of the Lake...

  2. This was Lake Minnetonka, Cooks Bay on Enchanted Island, 1976. A beautiful steamy August evening. I helped wash her hair, both naked in 3 plus feet of water just outside the weed line. To rinse off she would do a little jump dive forward showing a beautiful perfectly rounded ass and then do a half turn under water to arise and show perfectly pert breasts and a smile. Flip her shoulder-length hair back and then do it again. To this day it remains one of the most perfect and beautiful sights that I have witnessed.
