I enjoy Devil’s Lake State Park, the wonder and beauty —
ancient hills, with ever changing rock formations.
I see pebbles, sandstone, and slabs of quartzite, looming.
Laying on my back, a luscious blanket of emeralds —
sapphire skies, with ever changing pearly clouds.
I see a penguin talking to a T-rex, maybe it’s a mouse chasing a cat.
The earthy smell of leaves, trees, and dirt —
oak trees, with ever changing vibrant colors.
I see garnet, amber, and citrine colors, dropping from the trees.
The sparkling lake, a crisp, cool breeze blowing —
diamonds sparkling in the water, reflecting back on us.
I see a pool of freshwater, dripping with topaz and tourmalines.
The jewels of Devil’s Lake State Park, the rare and priceless allure —
sapphires, diamonds, garnets, amber, quartzite, topaz, and tourmalines.
I see nature’s homemade jewelry store.
