Pool Happiness

OwenAtThree

Jeanne’s watercolor of Owen at 3 years old

“I love you, Nana!”

shouts Oliver as he splashes into the indoor pool

for the 100th time

clutching his noodle to buffer his plunge-

to allow him to weather a swim

under the roof

during the thunder storm overhead.

 

I did indeed

find us a condo at the Ponds at Fox Run in Lenox

which offers him swim, fish, supper

in all kinds of weather.

Perhaps I’ll name him my campaign manager

for my run as “nana of the year!”

 

Water

water

Water me
Swim me
Tip your toe
Slurp your tongue.

Freeze me
Throw me
Catch me
Puddle me.

Float me
Dive me
Ponder me
Respect me.

Pails to swim and dribble.
