Cantaloupe

Cantaloupe

fallwater

A summer morning
Mom making breakfast
The cool air with the rising sun
Brightens the yard
Twin Lakes – going to the lake
Fishing or swimming
Walk down the dirt road
In our bare feet
Toughened by mid-summer
The smell of morning freshness
Lingering lilacs
Peonies in bloom
The fragrance of cantaloupe.
