Pictures at an Exhibition

Among these green plates
set upon a table of  
tranquil pond water,
summer is maturing.

White water lilies,
unreachable, untouchable,
display sensuous petals,
opening their soft secrets.

A silent show
floating on the surface,
performing on this
aquatic stage.

A live art exhibition
scheduled annually,
waiting for you to claim
your free admission.
