Right Where It Belongs

 
 

I breathe in laughter as it infuses my soul with joy. Squeals and monster voices permeate the chlorinated pool water, transforming the liquid into a world of little-girl-chasing-aquatic-beasts. Water splashes my feet and I can’t stop smiling. Dogs bark wait for me! I wanna play too! Giggles and sheiks erupt as a beast captures the little girl and proceeds to tickle her to death. Older, wiser chuckles cherry top the commotion. A vicious girl butterflies out and the beasts are swimming for their lives. Water sprays in happy faces as a battle erupts. Cannon Ball! The warriors scatter as body plummets for the water. A tsunami showers more laughter over everyone, hoots and hollers sprinkle overhead. Sunshine and silliness, right where it belongs. In this summer moment.
