UP NORTH AT THE LAKE CABIN in Minnesota writes poetry into summer days.
In water and land and sky.
Each sings with the relaxing rhythm of days that roll one into the other until dates are forgotten and the world seems to exist only among the towering pines.
Poetry writes verses on the lake and in cloudless skies and skies heavy with clouds and skies tinged with the fiery and golden hues of day’s beginning and day’s end.
Boats cruise and buzz.
Water skiers fly across water’s surface.
Families laugh and talk. Reconnect. Make memories.
This is the poetry of Up North at the lake cabin. Sand between toes.
Solitary moments of gliding across the lake on a kayak or paddleboard.
Each experience, moment, scene writes poetry into summer days at the lake cabin. S’mores around the campfire. Dining lakeside. Spending every waking minute outdoors. Embraced by nature.
Water. Land. Sky.
Up North at the lake cabin.
