A Stretch of the Imagination


WATERY WEDNESDAY
http://waterywednesday.blogspot.com/

A STRETCH OF THE IMAGINATION

Imagine this stretch of water (it's the local children's pool),
With the water round your ankles, lisping sweet and cool.
With the little hexagons of light dancing away in the sun,
And your toes shimmering under the surface, wriggling every one.
Imagine the sand on the bottom, all squidgy as you stand.
Imagine the icing on the cake.........you're holding my grandson's hand!
Ah, now you've got it! Happiness! I knew you'd get the feeling.
A stretch of the imagination and very very appealing!

Good shot. Regarding the bloke on the pool deck in my photo yesterday. He's in the first shot, just above the sandstone section and the street signs. He's quite tiny in the scheme of things, but it might help if you click on the photo to enlarge.

Absolutely delightful! That's why I take my own grandson to the beach as often as possible! There's something very special about it.

We could all use some of that sand and sun, not to mention the hand holding with someone we love.

Your description makes the scene all the more enjoyable.

What a joy! The water is calling my name!

P.S. About the duck's whisper, I think she might have said, come closer to me.

Beautiful expanse of water.

I swear, you had me there with you both. The photo is great, but your write up is the best ever.

My Wednesday photo is a BROWN PELICAN at the marina [I also have another photo, by link, of the same pelican that is much better...a close up on my photo blog].

COME SEE THE BIRD!

Hope your Wednesday is treating you well.

A lovely poem to go with this beautiful photograph. The water seems to be shimmering, a great place for children to play.

Jane said...

Beautiful shot Brenda, I love the sun on the water:)

There is nothing better than grandbabies and being able to spend time with them...I agree, "icing on the cake"!

Looks very inviting and definitely a place to have fun with a child.
