Florida Visits

crystalline blue water
I know that the pool is cold
but I still want to swim

checking the thermometer
I reconsider the thought

sitting in the sun
my gaze drifts from the book's page
to the waving palms

alone, yet
surrounded by the pensioners
watching golf

inside they drift off
volumes turned up too loud

over the doves' calls
and another day escapes
when we all could be living
