Sitting under the shade of my trees in the early evening I looked over at the pool and noticed this strange sight.
What on Earth is it?
On closer inspection I realised that it was two empty beer bottles, floating on the top step of the pool*, put there by my husband. Their image was distorted by refraction in the water. . . . Or, after a vodka or two, was the distortion in my head? Which gave rise to this little haiku:
Squiffy beer bottles
Warped beyond recognition
By one too many?
*post script: The blue thing behind the beer bottles is the pool bobbin; a plastic container that floats around the pool and slowly releases chemicals into the water to keep the algae at bay.
