A Dream

with Christopher & Benjamin

We would row a flat-bottomed boat on the wings of Silver Lake –
              Circle the belly of this open sanctuary
(Harboring the likes of speckled trout and painted turtles)
              Steer north to the island heart –
Where canopied green adventure awaits sure feet,
              Boat settling in sand—
Minds trawling the mysteries of water, air, and land.

I really like this one. It reminds me of summer camp as a boy at Honey Rock. Our cabin would paddle to cranberry island (or some name like that) and it was always an adventure.
