More Mysteries of the North Country- #7

Mirror image

Each evening when it's not totally overcast a 30 minute light-show appears to anyone at a lake. When the wind dies down as well the mirror image of the sunset appears in the water- Alice's looking-glass on a colossal scale. In warmer months, you can even wade into the water and become one with the illusion but on a chilly October's evening one must be content with admiring this vivid panorama from the shore.

This scene is eternal- existing since there have been eyes to see it. Did my prehistoric ancestors get the same feeling of awe as I do when I gaze upon this glorious illusion- a scene with two worlds in plain sight, yet both unreachable?

Heaven's gate.
