"No one can make you feel inferior without your consent."

Submerged underwater,
the elated, little lad
blows bubbles
that float to the pool’s surface.

The sun pokes tiny needles
onto his sister’s newly-freckled skin,
as beaded sweat
borders her brow line.

Their mother hastily constructs
her daily creation:
ridged potato chips,
bulging sandwiches, and juice boxes.

Ignoring their mother’s requests,
the children cherish
the timeless essence
of a mid-summer day.

I wanted to fill the innocence of a summer day in this piece. My inspiration was the time on the clock: 12pm (noon).
