sitting in the boat
the waves slap the side
tilting the structure
back and forth
gently, rhythmically
it is calm, empty
of others
this spring day
with cold disappeared
leaves widen their girth
soaking in long days
though shade was needed
as air felt comfortable
barely a breeze
just the sounds
of a cricket hidden
on land on minutes away
there isn’t pondering
nor boredom of activity
for the body relaxes
in the suns warmth
