Chancing Love

Not a dive’s precision arc.
Instead a lemming run and plunge,
oblivious to depth,
temperature, whether
water’s in the pool.

Cynics shake their heads.
“Only a fool…” they say.
“Yes, yes!” I answer,
and drop my towel.

      1. Way down the Southern part of Australia, Geelong, in the State of Victoria, if you Melbourne, about an a hour south of there, haha, and at 1.00am I’m still snuggled up in bed, and my little dog Lily , also hasn’t made a move yet.😐
