The Toss

arms wrap and lift
the small, fidgeting body
out of clear blue water,
up high into the air

swimsuit checkered pink and green
big goggles dominate
a small, laughing face –
ears stick out at an odd angle,
tamed by goggles’ rubber band;
wet hair in disarray

joyous squeal pierces ears
and draws a smirk;
the girl, panting with anticipation
to the father’s loving smile

a toss
a SPLASH!
a fountain –
and goggles resurface,
coughing, laughing ~
awaiting another round.

… following dVerse‘s wonderful prompt once again
