Simply 6 Minutes Challenge – Oct. 27th 2020

challenge: write ‘whatever’ comes to mind from viewing the picture

I see the inground pool and I reminisce about years I lived in the countryside.
My neighbors on one side purchased inground pools and on the other side of
them was those, including I, who could only afford above-ground ones.


Each summer we women would gather around poolside while we watched
our young children play and sometimes disagree. There was one game they
played where spoken over and over were the words ‘Marco Polo’


If only I could turn back the clock and relive those happier times of my life.
Sadly we make decisions based on circumstances and for some of us there are
no re-dos.


On occasion I dream about days and nights gone by only dreams often become
nightmares – ones I wish ne’er compare to happier yesterdays.

  1. What I like most about this piece is how it is so relatable! I think for anyone who has kids there were the days that didn’t seem simple then but looking back why didn’t we drag that time out more? Thank you for participating!
