Bathing Beauties

17 Jul

My mom and I spent a lot of time at the pool. She loved to sunbathe and I loved to swim. 

The other day I came home from having been in the water. As often happens, the water had moved my emotions. I decided that I had better pause and acknowledge them. So I went out on the porch and sat down. And felt the sun caressing my skin. 

During the anniversary of my mom’s death, I feel her in the sun.

She used to sit watching me dive, do tricks and yes, contemplate my navel. 

We were two bathing beauties. And I miss that.
