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.
