On a Perfect Day

We sleep til 9

No Alarm Clocks

No ringing phones

No cares

No worries

The kids make breakfast


Even clean their mess

No raised voices

No sibling rivalry

We pack a picnic lunch

We load up the car

We head for the dock

We board the boat


We set sail

Headed for nowhere

Just out into the wide blue yonder

Just the stir of giggles

Smiles across all their faces

Laying flatly on chairs lined about the boat

No one even cares what the other is talking about

Simple and carefree is what this day is all about

The sun is nearly setting

The wind is picking up

It’s time to set sail for the return trip home

The smell of the crisp clean ocean tugs at our noses

Makes us long for what we’ve just gotten

We hit dry land

Happy but sad to be back again

A beautiful sunset

A perfect ending


A perfect
