Lakeside Standstill Haibun

Canoes, kayaks, and tiny remote-controlled speedboats dominate the beach scene between the intermittent barefooted sunbathers running for cover from the predicted but unpredictable sun showers, the occasional beach bum loon stopping by to solicit a baitbox handout  minnowsnack to enjoy en route to his ramshackle shoreline squat a little further down the beach, and the brief but still only just barely bearable Sunday afternoon sunbursts, hot enough to boil your brainfluids even though the heat source is ninety-three million miles away.
