Bright sunshine reflects off the smooth surface. Where have they gone? The splashers. The swimmers. The faithful sun and water worshipers?
School started recently. Long summer days continue, keeping the pool refreshing as always. Morning brings the maintenance worker. Faithful mature citizens intent to keep an excerise routine follow in the morning hours.
Late morning and early afternoon the water rests.
Wait! A big yellow bus releases students. More come walking from the opposite direction. In the late afternoon they come to expell their energy after hours of manners and control in the classroom.
Swimmers and splashers don’t linger now. Shadows grow long and they come to the edge, drip, and reach for a towel. Time to go – supper and homework await.
