white boat

The boat made no pretensions to beauty; it was remarkable only in the stark whiteness of its utilitarian fibreglass hull. But I liked the way it looked, set atop an ancient driftwood log, with a background of frosted foliage that preserved the minimalist colour palette.

summer’s gone

Cabins are shut up for the season, the lake now empty of swimmers and canoes. Distant laughter and barbecue aromas no longer drift across the water. The dragonflies have disappeared too, and taken the summer with them, leaving behind cool nights, misty mornings, and a new generation sleeping just beneath the surface.
