the nearer your destination

time slides
into a pool
plastic balls
of every color
frolics madly
screams & spins
then passes out
on the sidelines
naps & dreaming
of ocean waves
wakes in a start
tasting of salt
pours cool water
in a tall glass
drinks it down
& slides again.

  3. Oh this is nice!

    This is my favorite "frolics madly
    screams & spins
    then passes out
    on the sidelines".

    Excellent!
