It's summertime and the livin' is easy.  I love lying in a beautiful pool in the late afternoon just drifting along with the breeze and thinking about how lucky I really am.  I hope you enjoy my reflections.


I lie adrift in an azure pool
with arms out stretched
in weightlessness
and shut my eyes behind
my shades
and gaze through eyelids
red with blood at
changing patterns light and dark.

The sun bares down
from cloudless sky
gulf breezes slowly
turn me round
and I can feel
my skin turn brown
as afternoon slips into night
and with it every troubling thought

fades on the gentle swells.
