Walking to the lake through the spring rains, and all the lush greenery with a grandson is a happy experience.

Spring rains are falling
Tree roots loosen and lean
Some drop with a swoosh
And hollow out the ground
Water fills the ditches

We follow the stream
Through the soggy woods
With lush feathery fern
Ivy dangles from the poplar
Poison oak explodes

We hike to the roiling lake
Water covers the beach
The lake has taken the pines
We skip pebbles and
Make deep muddy tracks

James says with a grin:
“Grandmother,
We are two muddy ducks”
