On The Pontoon


Written for Trifecta's 33 writing challenge.

**************************

Sunrise they drop lines, sip coffee; smiling at each other.

Afternoon’s heat packs coolers, friends and music tied together.

Sunset drops on a perfectly still night; moonlit lovers float…No one in sight.





(Great video)

      You nailed it because it's all three especially insane (at times, like last night).

  10. Nothing beats a boat. Nothing. I liked this a lot--makes me wish for sunny skies.

    1. I agree. I could take boat rides all day and all night and often do. A beautifully sunny Sunday here!

  12. Oh yes! And down here in the South, the sun's contrasts are particularly easy to feel, even out on the water.

    1. Hey, JQ!
      You are the only one who picked up on the my object being the sun. Yes! The contrasts of the sun making up a complete day and you would feel it even more in Kentucky.
