Poetry: Kayaking Lesson on Lake Superior

| By Janis Gingermountain |

We go along parallel,
Julie and I,
like two yellow ducks
on the holy swells
of the Mother’s bosom,
lightness of being
attained at last.
Now I can die happy.
‘Round and ‘round the cove we speed
baptized again and again
by dripping paddles
world without end amen
