Water Baby
« on: August 23, 2017, 07:12:32 AM »

 
With temperatures high 
and a clear blue sky
the day has now got
incredibly hot
but its pleasantly cool
in the hotel pool.

The water Im in
comes up to my chin.
for Im keenly devoting
my life to just floating
and I may just be seeing
a raised state of being.

A baby drifts by,
it catches my eye
with impressively fair 
Art Garfunkel hair
 - an odd little thing
it floats in a ring.

It raised quite a din
when they first put it in,
its tantrum now ended
it floats as intended,
chuckling, babbling,
little hands dabbling,
bobbing along at a leisurely pace
happiness etched on its pink little face.

I have lunched on Doritos
and two large Mojitos,
Im a very long way
from the dull workaday
but this baby may be
more contented than me.

Cheers Dylan, thanks for sharing. Always enjoy reading your poems, this one I found very relaxing. Not 2 mojitos and a float relaxed, but good for a Wednesday morning.

Sadly, none of us can be 2 mojitos and a float relaxed all time. That would be a slippery slope. And quite expensive.

Really enjoyed this.  I have a go at poetry myself occasionally but it doesn't come naturally.

I loved the Art Garfunkel hair!

LOL

Thank you.
