Walking quietly into the partially covered pool area
Reflecting light rippled through the
Smell of the heavily chlorinated water.
Blue walls were bleeding into the crackled pool tiles
Temperate warm water eased the dive into the pool
Buggy board slopped against the chest.
Spigots of water spit on arms
After the body announced that thirty laps were sufficient,
the heavy-duty Israeli cotton towel dried off
Adjacent jacuzzi bubbled after turning the nob
that brought the jets to life.
Almost scalding hot water soothed
lower back ache
shrunk the prostate
comforted carpel tunnel wrists
Dunking head was the final baptism
Before pool ejecting
Sit on the peeling bench
and let droplets fall to the ground
Kindle reading time
Guilty beach pleasure
Twenty-Eight Summers by Elin Hilderbrand
Ammunition to face the remainder of the humid day
Rejuvenated dried fruit waiting to be picked
