Summer Joy





Rocks skidding across the water
zoom, zoom, zoom, splash
Three times, mine skipped before it's end.
My youngest child's boulder sank with a
THUD
to the bottom.
Her sister's booming laughter was contagious.

  4. It takes a certain kind of rock and and a knack to skip rocks. (If this interaction would've been between my sons, my youngest would've shoved his brother into the lake.)
