Canoeing in the BWCA, Aug. 2010

P addles
E tch ripples as
A wakening birdsong
C reates serene
E choes

Peaceful Pieces: 
Poems and Quilts About Peace

The kids and I are all feeling sad that we won't be able to go camping in the Boundary Waters this summer, especially since we didn't get to go last year, either.  One of my favorite things about spending time there is just gliding along in a canoe, feeling utterly at peace.  I was delighted to find this acrostic poem that reminded me of the BWCA, in one of the books I brought home from the library earlier this month!
