LJ Idol Exhibit B: Week 13 Home Game - Glitter Afternoon

This is my home-game entry this week in the mini-season of therealljidol, Exhibit B. Please read the many fine entries. This week I chose the topic "Glitter Afternoon Post."




GLITTER AFTERNOON

The pool water ripples silver white.
Glossy leaves give back the sun.
Rainbow diamonds of my sun reflector, folded
on the seat next to me. A small voice
sparkling from his car seat
reflecting my words. The late-summer
glare off grills and hoods.
The bright sound of banjos
on the radio, bubbling a folk tune, followed
by an '80s hit. Would I lie to you
about this shining day?
