Placid lake

by Norbert Rath

Being placid is easy for a lake
especially when it is small.
Even wind can hardly make
it tremble as trees build a wall.

For people placidity is a hard feat.
Their reactions quite often show
aggression towards others that they meet
when their patience level is low.

Perhaps a lake can show us how
to keep our calm when needed,
and in a placid way allow
aggression to be heeded.
