Looking Back

We looked back to the shore
just once,
to the last portage
of the journey:
a small bare beach
against the dark pines.

We paddled on
around the point
toward the furthest shore
and the slow falling of the sun
marked our course.

Homeward across the lake,
until we disappeared into
evening light and quiet water.
