the prompt is “collapse”

Dazzled

Collapsed in the deck chair after a brief swim
my eyes gaze in rapture at water sparkling like diamonds
beyond the orange tinted stars of a Japanese maple
dancing in the breeze.

The poet asked “what will you do with your one precious life?”
I don’t know.
I can’t think beyond glorious appreciation
of the beauty before me.
