Starlings sing over sparkling chlorinated waters.
Quarters plop and bubble to the bottom of the pool.
Her oversized goggles assist in tales of water monsters.
Scattered flies entangled in her hair are the only obstacles.
Yet diving for silver becomes more important than hygiene.
Peels of laughter echo off the concrete resort,
Giving competition to the cries of hungry birds.
Slappy, soggy feet give away your stealthy mind
In a bout of hide and seek.
New friends are made in imagination and buoyant warm waters.
Common goals keep you all bound together.
Find the quarter first and the prize is
Getting to do it all over again.
