Changing Perspectives: Sunset Kayak Picnic

we didn’t cook out

grilling chicken was our plan

he’d had an idea 

Let’s pack a picnic

for supper he’d suggested

spontaneously 

camper smorgasbord 

a hodgepodge of leftovers

along west shore shade

we picked the playlist 

packed the soft-sided cooler

paddled to sunset

Calypso, Shannon,

I Love the Way You Love Me,

Love Can Build a Bridge

no schnoodles this time –

just the two of us, plus food

sky blue Pelicans

We should do this more

often, he quipped, munching chips

I smiled….you’re right, dear

resting in the shade

kicked back, admiring nature,

we took it all in

Psalm 65:8 

So that those who dwell at the ends of the earth are in awe at your signs. You make the going out of the morning and the evening to shout for joy.
