The River

Yesterday my dad didn't have to work, and it was absolutely beautiful outside. So, we loaded up the car and headed up to Glacier Park. We went to Apgar and found a spot by the river. The water was really high, and there was no beach at all. So me and Molly found a spot that where we could sit on the rocks, and still stick our feet in the water. Which is what we did. Of course, the water was freezing cold because it's all from the snow that's melting, so we quickly would pull our feet out. It was a good day of relaxation.

The River
A scatter of rocks,
two girls sitting.
One with a book,
the other with a barefoot
in the water.
A silly joke,
a moment of laughter.
Silence again.
An observation,
a question.
The book put down.
A short discussion,
two smiles and sunlight.
Watching the world;
the smell of sunscreen.
Shorts and tank-tops,
first day of summer.
Two sisters,
a silent bond.
