Soaking in boyhood

My boy is at home

with a rock in his hand

standing in water, 
even though he's wearing
 tennis shoes and socks. 
That would have stopped me.
Or made me take off my shoes.
Not Ben.

The water-soaked shoes didn't slow him down,

but the stick did distract him 
from the rock-skipping success 
in the background.

Boys will be boys.  
Always, if you're Ben.
