Daily Note

Every day, a photograph, a poem. One of our favorite summer spots is just three miles away at Spring Canyon, part of Lake Roosevelt National Recreation Area. Lake Roosevelt is the reservoir behind Grand Coulee Dam, so right now the water is low in anticipation of spring run off to prevent flooding downstream. Soon, the spring of the mountains will flow into the river and fill the lake again. Yesterday, we visited to see the expanse of sand that will be covered with water and the dock will again fill with kids seeking fun and the cooling off from the glacial waters of the mountains far away. It’s an “ahhhh”-some view now and will, indeed, produce sighs of “ahhhhh” when the summer heat is cooled by these waters.

Anticipation

Ahh…
Shadows of the evening sun
stretch across greening lawn
Exposing the dock and beach of sand
Where spring rains bring back water’s high
So children cool with summer’s sigh.
Ahh…
