Memorial day memories


Chipmunk’s manic in foraging
Something’s scurrying under the chair
jump to the cup for nuts and seeds
the birds are greedily making a mess
Phoebes and Finches, friends and family
cooler full of adult libations
casting for the sake of standing by the shore
resting on the dock, kicking the cool lake
a few gnats and mosquitoes at bay
all worth the campfire smell on my clothes
looking forward to the Bison burgers off the grill
Baby’s in the hammock swaying away her cares
flip-flops and t-shirt, the memorial day uniform
card games and kayaking, the day’s main activities
only a bountiful lunch bisects the afternoon
a solemn and pensive moment on the day’s freedom
back to life outside of the office
