Deja Blue

Location

" He leadeth me beside the still waters."

Water.

My first time at the pool

" Do not run! " she says

"Jump with me Rissa! " my little sister yells

Splash!

The bubbles surround my face 

The crystal clear water engulfs me

Water.

" Shoo Wee!" my mom says 

I had just returned from my mud kitchen outside

I hear the water gushing into the tub

The suds begin to rise

Like a tower of warm snow

Water.

Sitting,sitting,sitting, watching patiently

" I caught one! Look Daddy!" 

My first fish

Although it is only four inches long it is a monster in my eyes

Water.

The whistle sounds

That is the end

My Senior year 

District Champions!

I celebrate with my team as sweat and tears of joy stream down my face

My heart still pounding from the disbelief 

Water. Deja Blue.
