No Man's Land

by April Salzano

As if by Monet’s grace lily pads lace

a lake perimetered by effective silence reflected

like limbs on a surface undaunted

by wind not moving paralyzed

clouds across the safety of sky ignoring

the intended meaning of a warning

affixed to a tree bearing witness to it all
