camping trips when i was little
were every summer, rain into shine.
no matter the weather we camped
seeking any number of beautiful spots
the rainforest our playground, the ocean
lapping at heels dug into sand.
on every trip we would bring
a crate clinking with a promise
oh anticipation! a special summer treat.
heading to our destination, serious negotiations
transpired. my siblings and i asking:
ok, who gets what? counting, dividing
so that when the time came…
after running, jumping and exploring nature…
we were ready – selections already made
taking that first delicious, fizzy sip
of Pop Shoppe soda. such yum!
when i was little, refreshment was
Lime Rickey, Orange and Root Bear.
i will always associate these flavours
to summer camping trips with family.
