Nothing is softer or more flexible than water, yet nothing can resist it.
It calls to him, drawing him in.
It washes down upon him, sending him into bliss.
A half-crooked smile spreads across his face.
Giggles come in fierce waves,
Emulating the splashing frenzy of his flapping hands.
Blowing bubbles, lapping up chlorine flavored mouthfuls.
Though in perpetual motion,
He is at peace here in this aquamarine nirvana.
