The Pool

Valentina Baretta

It is an escape
From the ever-changing world
The pool stays the same
 
Never ending trance
Water is always flowing
See it and feel calm
 
A romantic sight
The pool keeps me entertained
I want to dive in
 
Once I’d choose to go
Serenity envelopes
No longer stressed out
 
No reason to leave
When what I need is right here
Keeping the warmth near
 
Sunlight penetrates
Thousands of rays are dancing
Must gaze upon them
 
I simply feel peace
This day could not be better
Only want to stay
 
When the sun will sleep
Will I go and leave the pool
And wake from this dream
