The first single from Genius Loci North, inspired by the haunting song of the white throated sparrow, Mirror Lake reflects the spirits of place by a mountain lake at the end of the summer. What do the local creatures think of us as we arrive with all our bug spray and tropical fruit? The music was instantly composed on site because I like to keep it fresh!


Mirror Lake

Orange essence and lemongrass and
my watermelon rind
in my mandarin floatie
with tangerine dream on my tongue

foreign scents in the
pine forest
so the blue iridescent dragonflies
flutter, confused

they rest on your white skin
looking for snow or ice
or a sparkling spring

bees suckle on my toes
tadpoles underfoot
we stare at the clouds
test the wind
and watch the
dark clouds recede

the curious hare
bounds past
one ear damaged
by frost

we'll keep the wolves at bay
with our burnt marshmallows
and our eucalyptus
citronella lotion

seven chipmunks rush
carelessly while
two boys draw and
three generations
reflect in the mirror lake
we move in sync
in summer
with the long, hot nights
sunset in our view
missing you and you and you
and you too
