A Time to Hike

It was hot.  Sweltering, steamy hot.
The shade helped,
and the breeze a precious gift.

Day and time picked out weeks ago,
and rescheduling, though an option, wasn't considered.
The children were anxious to picnic and hike together.

Walking sunny fields, occasionally resting in maple tree shade,
we made our way to their favorite spot,
a wooded hill, littered with boulders,
and ending with a pond.

They climbed, shuffled, skimmed over and under rocks,
examined critters, leaves, and moss,
and laughed while exploring.

Though the heat was oppressive,
the time spent with friends and the adventure of the day
was a blessing!
