Lake Pontchartrain MAG

A lake of simmering beauty and grace,
her waves turn from wild and white-capped
to smooth as glass with small ripples
flowing out toward the middle, waving to
the bridge and the cars dotting along its length;
Sea gulls and other birds collect themselves
on the small shacks spaced out on the
seemingly oblivious to the
cars passing them in
colorful blurs.

This is about the huge lake that separates the Northshore of Louisiana from the Southshore (home of New Orleans) and can be very pretty on certain days.
