A Morning Kayak Ride

Eating my breakfast

with great haste

the sun is rising

there is no time to waste

Paddling in my kayak

making ripples in the river

a beautiful sunrise

a breeze making me quiver

The forest came to life

as the birds began to sing

blue herons in the river

each doing their own thing

The deer came out

the family came to drink

disturbing a skunk

the air began to stink

Going through the rapids

water on my face

capricious thoughts came to me

as my heart raced

Kayak comes to shore

a lazy summer day

filled with gratitude

as I go my way
