Canoe Dreams


This silly poem is dedicated to anyone who is a little down…..


Looking here…

looking there…

Wetness is now everywhere…

Floods have raised..

the level true…

Canoes enough

on water blue.

Look beyond

the lake I’ve found

clouds are rising from the


A mist over the water


And the sun begins

to shine…

Stroking out into the


stop your worries…

life’s so bright..

put away your troubles


the future glows

forget the past…

Sadness is its own

black course..

Try a smile

forget remorse…

float into the

sun’s sweet rays…

And your thoughts

burn in the haze….
