Here I Sit In On An Innertube In The Water

Updated on September 1, 2010

A View From The Waters Edge

Do you remember when you did this as a kid ?

Circling around kicking your feet in any direction it didn't really matter

Having fun soaking up the sun

Getting your feet wet and occasionally your fanny too

Those are the days I remember so well

As if life stopped for a moment

Nothing else could compare to the felings you are enjoying right here

See the swirls of water next to you

As if you were in control of every move

Like a chess player who has his opponent right were you want them

Relaxed at last and free to do what ever pleases you at the moment

You make the waves with you arms by your side

You are almost butt naked enjoying who you are and who you have become

All your wrinkles and your extra pounds you never see are visible

No concerns for the time being

Watching a poor little fly fight for his life in the water

It is time for you to come to the rescue

As you lift him up from his watery grave

You put him on dry land

You could of just moved him to the filter and be done with him

You could let him drown a slow death

The dirty thing it is

But you feel pity for it

It is struggling to survive

You now have reached a new understanding

You too have been in trouble and waited for someone to pluck you from uncertain fate

Next time we meet we will be enemies again

May the strongest win

For now you are enjoying all the comforts the crystal clear water brings

You are not fighting nature

You have put down your sheild and dropped your weapons of choice

You have either gone mad or just plain tired of the human rat race

To float across the water like a pen whose ink cascades across

The day is mine to enjoy and thank God for

For an instant not a trouble to be found

Amist the silence and solitude

You have found a temporary home

You feel you could float indefinetely

No need for other things

Since the water shares your happiness from within

      Brenda Durham You are so right.I couldn't make up my mind if I wanted to say Here I sit on an innertube in the water or Here I sit in an innertube in the water.So I combined them both.Kind of a play on words.Because when I go in the innertube you are both on it and in it at the same time.There are more grammar mistakes to follow.But as time goes on I will learn from my fellow hubbers good advice to impove on my writings.I am very appreciative for any advice given.I love to express my thoughts and I try to use the best words I know to show that.I hope my overall meaning will shine through all my errors.I am happy to say this was my 3rd rough draft so I have corrected alot before you read my story.Please come back and read more and by all means have a great and delightful day.
