The Blue Pond

In reality it's a dugout on an acreage where I do some
gardening.  The dugout is lined with fieldstone on
three sides.

It was late morning and I was out to check on some trees
that had just been planted.  The temperature was quickly
rising and the water looked so cool and blue and inviting.

Made me think of when I was about eleven years old and
what a joy it was to ride my bike from the farm into town
and go to the swimming pool on a hot afternoon.  Of
course that was after I'd helped my mom by picking
weeds all morning in the vegetable garden.  When you're
the youngest of six kids you get to do the gardening
whether you want to or not.
