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?

That's how I felt last week! But I had a little time yesterday, so I dictated it then.

I like all of the imagery captured in this poem, especially the different forms of bright and glittering things-- including the happy little voice of KFP. This evokes such vivid and joyfully magical moment in a summer afternoon.
