That was summer poem

Remember that time 

When you felt the frustration of learning to water ski

Going up out of the water 

Only to be thrown off by the waves of a passing Jet Ski ?


Remember that time 

When you finally got up 

And swang yourself up over the wake ?


Can you remember the feeling of the wind 

Whipping your hair into your face 

And the water spraying up into your eyes 

But the amazing feeling if triumph

 When you complete your loop ? 


Remember that time

When you flipped on the biscuit 

With Amelia*  and Kenzie * screaming in your ear 

Or the time you almost died 

Because Dad did one of his famous donuts 

( that’s on the boat with a biscuit behind it not the kind you eat )
