Tall green trees meeting the sky...

Sparkling dark cold water...

The sun begins to shine.

I push my small canoe

from shore

gently stepping in.

A quiet balance...

I paddle around the bend.

Alone on the lake...

not a soul in sight.

I lean back and trail my fingers through

the northern waters.

Sighing, I rest.

The sun is warm,

yet the air is chilly.

Ducks look at me tentatively,


The lake is the same

as I remembered.

Comforting me.

Welcoming me.

Giving to me.

My heart holds this lake close

when I am far away.

My mind relives the simple, sweet memories.

You were still alive.

I am thankful that I have...

My canoe. My lake. My memories of you.

Lovely Sheri, wonderfully descriptive. I felt like being there on the lake myself. What would life be without the great " Outdoors".
