TAKE A DIP
Excerpt from "Boyville"
The next phase of girls were real live peers on a neighbor’s pier with an endless array of changing bikinis. That’s when King of The Raft took on a whole new level of intensity and when new lifelong friendships were forged. And the games continued. New to our guys, and much to their amazement and probably chagrin, they became quite good at Charades. And any other game the girls deemed worthy playing. As bodies matured and interests were sparked, dreams of summer romances percolated around us. Although those never took flame, the friendships of the boys and girls of summer forever hold steadfast and true.
Excerpt from "Sketches"
A slow sunset dance in
the middle of the lake.
Our kayaks spin
as the light changes.
First, a brilliant glow
on the far shore
illuminating the last row of cottages
edged with dusty blue and deep green reflections.
The sun melts golden
into the horizon
as the light shifts to the west
and transforms into blood red orange.
Highlighted by smoky streaks of gray
sketched across the sky.
Billowy puffs turn the lake into
medallions of magenta
outlined with pools of shimmering silver.
Sky meets lake, reflects sky
and only the kayak edge separates the two.
Night after night, spin after spin
we do the sunset waltz...
And remain wonderstruck.
