Great Day in Paradise

Feel my bare toes weave in and out
Moist mossy green grass
To warm golden-yellow sand

Feel the breeze rush around
My smooth summer-tan skin

Feel stonger winds take control
Over my chin-length chestnut brown hair

Hear the graon of the floating dock
Rocking with wake
From speeding boats

Hear children nextdoor
Scream as they take turns 
Jumping into freezing waters

Hear the yells of excitement
As men scream to the biased refs on the TV

See smiles on everyones faces
Enjoying time together

See food, food, food
And more food
Waiting to be eaten

See a smooth blue-green lake
Completely surrounding me

Smell fish resting peacefully
Under the smooth water

Smell hotdogs, hamburgers, fish, and chicken
Grilling away for our dinner

Smell gasoline from the big
Red container
Wating to be empited into a boat

Taste that little bit of fishy water 
Still left in my mouth
From the tube wipe-out!

Taste bubbling goodness
Of Dr. Pepper

Taste salty deliciousness of
Grandma's chex-mix

Feel the last bit of todays sun 
Soak into my sunburned 
Smooth summer-tan skin

Feel my mind fill with wonder
For the day to come

Feel my eyes slowly shut 
As the day winds down
And I sit here on the swing
Enjoying another great day at the lake
