La Piscina Décima

Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #13
“True” In C rhyme line


La Piscina

In bright sun, the blue summer pool
A vinyl cooler, filled with a hose.
Hidden respite to shed some clothes
Dream of cold water I’m no fool.

This oasis is my jewel
A hidden scheme some say it’s true
Though it’s plastic we still make do.
Now jealous neighbors come around
It’s bought at Wal-Mart so they frown
So we wade and bid them adieu
