Season’s End


SKU: seasons-end Category: Tags: , , , ,


It had been a good year on the lake, that’s for sure.

The languid summer days had been idyllic, halcyon even, and the time had simply flown by. They stopped to remember the first day they were out on the water, and it seemed like it was just this morning that they slipped into the clear, crystal waters. They recalled the lazy summer days drifting, and occasionally being rowed, across the lake; perhaps the fishing was better on the far side, but in any event, it never hurt to find out. They recalled the days when the water had a slight chop to it, adding a slight thrill, and they recalled the days when the mirror surface was broken only by the occasional jumping fish. They remembered each day, and shared again the delight of the open water.

At last, however, they finally acquiesced to the season’s end, and began the final journey to the far shore. Pulled up on the bank, their owners trudged up the hill. Their hearts were heavy at the moment, but they knew that spring would be back soon enough and once again they would experience the joy of being out on the water. In the meantime, I simply watched them rest on the shore of a lake in Grand Mesa, Colorado, patiently enduring this season’s end.
