Picture Perfect

 

 

Picture Perfect

 

back to FDR State Park

log cabin #7 on Lake Delanor

evening shade of Slash pines

big around as burn barrels

 

hum of trucks puttering

around the lake loop

pulling campers

sound carrying across the water

 

country music from site 21

lighter fluid and charcoal wafting

smoke crossing borders

embers perfect, ready to grill

 

TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR!

umbrella up, covering the flames

grilling steaks in the rain

together, all that matters

 

two yellow kayaks, one red canoe

paddling to shore

peace interrupted

steaks done, so is the rain

 

eerily quiet and still

air-conditioned cabin

too cool on damp skin

urges dinner on the screened stone porch

in the rockers

 

chirping of birds and crickets

tree frogs trilling

tender steak, coleslaw, dilled red potatoes

juicy seedless watermelon

two bottled Blue Moons

 

steam rising off the lake

in a misty picture

perfect
