All odds with the man reading a book
Under the weathered wooden pergola,
His presence getting bigger as the swimmer gets closer,
Until she can notice his pursing lips
- sign of intense concentration-
And can read the title on the cover of his book.
All evens colored in red, yellow and subtle purple
Topping blond stalks that dance under frowning skies,
At the music of a dusky breeze,
Until they resemble the hair of a young girl
Who is flirting with the prospects of ripe summer.
Tiles, water and breathing being fleeting blue and fluttering.
