223. Powerboat

I treated my partner to a powerboat picnic the other evening after work. The prior few weeks had been filled with radiant sun, beautiful evening sunsets and weather so sublime that I had not questioned that anything but sun would glow as we dashed across the lakes surface. Our soirée was quite removed from this. A storm set in, we were forever running from rain and the water was choppy, abrasive and at times quite foreboding. It was so much fun. I wrote this haiku about the experience. 

Skimming like a stone,

Over choppy, briney, cold 

Fall in and you die.

  1. Beautiful experience you have written. Although I have not ride in a power boat it’s really interesting in such a great weather on the river. Thanks.
