Sand filled shoes stand outside cabins.
Wooden porches out look the lake.
Calm, morning breezes come for our sake.
Stones gather at the shallow shore,
Seems like nothing more.
Small-smooth stones fit nicely into damped pockets.
Smoke raises curiosity as crisp marshmallows
Melt Hershey's Chocolate.
Flames release comfort as the night sky hits drifting waters,
From Big Turtle Lake.

The author's comments:
My family and I visited Big Turtle Lake since I was a baby. We haven't been there in years, but the past years are fresh in my memory.
