The Deep

Daily Prompt:  Shallow

It’s always exciting
My first dip in the pool
It means that summer’s arrived.

Get out of the deep
And into the shallow
Mama then called to me.

No mama I can’t
I’ve waited all year
To jump into the deep end.

Life takes courage
Takes heart
I responded with glee.

She gave me the look
You know the look
As her color turned very red

Then smiling I said
Come on mom jump right in
And you’ll see it’s much more fun in the deep.

Friendly Fill-Ins

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 64


Here are my fill-ins for this week.

1. As a child, my favorite playground activity was the swings.  I just loved to to as high as I could.

2. For breakfast, I have coffee.  I don’t like to eat right after I get up.

3. An instrument I would like to play is the piano.  I started to learn when I was in my teens, but I had such a hard time reading the music.  So, I gave it up.

4. I always try to make peace with whomever I have had a disagreement with right away because you never know when the opportunity for forgiveness will run out.  I learned that valuable lesson the hard way.
