Tiny White Canoe


Beneath the hanging branches 
of the weeping willow trees.

Along the winding river
so very hard to see.

On a lazy summer day
floats a tiny white canoe.

The water lapping at it's sides 
beats a soft tattoo.

Cradled in it's center
quite out of view.

Lays a small Indian boy
sound asleep named Cuc'koo.

What a way to spend
a sultry afternoon.

Drifting into dreamland
in a tiny white canoe.

This poem is part of a series including    Sunset Reverie, A Night of Dreams, Days End and An Evening by The Lake.

    Friday the 13th is usually my luckiest day of the year. I'm not sure why. How young will you be this year? My B Day just past as I am a child of the spring when everything is pale green, colorful flowers fresh and new. May life make your heart as loving as your words. TLee
