Hour 1 prompt title In the Pool

In the Pool

With my granddaughter
Is a perfect joyous space

The Arizona sun beats down
The water is warm yet cooling.

The child at ten still
Plays with abandon.

She is safe and knows it…
Has no idea what a luxury that is.

  1. Wow – the poem lulls one in to the moment and then the full juxtaposition at the end – so true and scary and real but at the same time, don’t we all wish we could play with wild abandon and be safe!!
