Lake Tahoe

Hypocrit

Sunrise glints across the water
I stand watching my family
Have fun with me the bystander
Just standing as the wannabe

Lush water wafting up to my ankles
Shading darker as deeper
Splashes get to me and trickle
Down my spine invoking shiver

I'm not alone as I sit
Not brave enough for hydrotherapy
On the menacing beach a hypocrit
Since I spoke before ability to see

Carnal footsteps follow me
On the walk back a wimp
With my earnest cold family
Trudging to our inocculate camp

Author's Notes/Comments: 

I wrote this, and two other poems while in lake tahoe in July of 2011. The other two i wrote are better. If you enjoyed this, please read my others.
