Belly laughs until the tears are falling
Splashing in rolling frothy waves
Board games in the waning light
Floating in tubes along the glistening sunset waters
Lunch in the shade of elms and oaks, talking
Movies in pyjamas
Sharing space companionably
Dares and stories and memories…
Sleepovers are not only for children,
And vacations are not couples-only.
When two friends meet for days of R&R
Even Nature smiles.
