Point Pelee: Mark Nenadov

A child is bumbling along the boardwalk
soaking in the summer sun,
scampering along comes
a slender five-lined skink
also soaking up the sun
which springs off the water,
that is lined with verdant plant life
and sly, sneaking creatures of the marsh
like leopard frogs
which rest on lily pads
placed by providence
with a wonderful symmetry
like gems set perfectly on display
eye candy for the walkers
like this child who
traverses the boardwalk
which anchors the sprawling marsh
where canoes swiftly slice
through the weed stew.
