Literary Lion: “Pool”- Dreadful pool

pool

The pool in her village

She was sitting at the pool with her feet touching the water. Her eyes are looking at the water, but her thoughts immersed deep into memories of her childhood. She is on a visit to her grandparents after so many years, but her memories are afresh. She can clearly visualise that dreadful day when she was playing paper boats with her tiny brother who drowned into the pool in an attempt to catch her boat. She could not forgive herself for not being able to save him in spite of the fact that she did not know swimming.

This post is in response to the literary lion blog event sponsored by Laura Gabrielle Feasey which can be viewed at this link for more reads.

  1. You can just see the paper boats floating by, just mesmerizing enough to make a boy reach and fall. I’ve always been drawn to the stark differences between things place in the same time and space, with surprising results. What beautiful tone and flow here, too. Well done.
