A Slice of Summer

Languishing waters

Dressed in velvet green.

Home to jumping fish

Sitting turtles caught gossiping on a stick.

Floating leaves giving previews of the Fall parade.

Laughing and scolding of kingfishers enjoying an evening buffet.

Minnows blowing kisses at the synchronized water bugs

Skidding, skimming in mass and parting as my kayak flows.

Your grassy banks hemming in the joy and peace where squirrels and herons and my soul get their fill.
