Sweet Summer Sun-Day

...as we pedaled in tandem

cooled feet under the Bridge

in pools on stone

to the sound of water rushing, gurgling--

            falling

 

...as we shared the load back to town again

a couple well suited

a glory to You

with iced tea for reward

and sweet joy shared, in tandem.

 

Sweet summer Sun-day

...as we sliced through calm ocean

to survey the 'Hulks'--

time tested stalwarts, still steady,

with grapefruit slushie to follow

and sweet joy shared, in tandem.

Home again we cat-napped

and feasted on fowl

and sweet summer slices of

wet watermelon

and I lay me down as sun faded down

under fleece-lined quilt to read poems

and dream of sweet summer sun

in verse.
