Shallow Water


There I was. Sitting in a puddle, sulking. Deep into a tantrum, kicking violently as a child would. Muddying the shallow water with the sand and silt that I have dredged up. Without looking at my partner, I knew he was just shaking his head with a grin plastered on his face. Yeah I know, I can be such a kid at times.

I kept my head down and watched the water clear up as the sand settled. The ripples subsided and its surface reflected the clear sky. I lifted my head and saw the tranquil seawater all around me. It embraced the two of us, gently pushing us to shore, before heading back.

The late afternoon sun's reflection in the water was pretty. I asked him to sit beside me, so he could see. I cupped some water and trapped the sun in my hands.

I smiled at him and said, "For you..."

He beamed at me, before we started laughing uncontrollably. Kids.

Sean, that was beautiful. Childhood (or childish. lol) stories never cease to amaze me. You did it again.

I guess everyone desires to be a child again with nothing to worry about in life. You're lucky you tried to be that free spirited kid you have desired to be.

Welcome back. =)
