Pool Time

Today I played in a pool with other women

For an hour

The water bubbled around us as

We made waves, swam in circles.

We wore bathing suits, all kinds

Flowers and stripes and skirts

Our hair got wet from splashes,

We were little old ladies

Tossing a medicine ball back and forth, we

Jogged through oceans

While the instructor stood on the edge demonstrating

Our next move

And the hollow echos of our happy shouts were loud

Against the concrete walls.
