Writing in Montreux

The Jethro Tull said hi,
bonjour, grüezi* in Montreux
and proceeded to play.
And I’ve almost finished my
seven lines in Montreux,
looking out on the lake,
listening from far away.

– Leonard Blumfeld (© 2013)

*Swiss German greeting (more or less like "good day!")

The challenge was to write seven lines in a place where one has never written before:

One poem.
7 lines in length. 
Make it perfect.

I love it. And it IS perfect! I do a lot of "listening from far away". Loved this one!
