Bathing Day

She is younger
Than the rock upon which she displays herself
As if it is was a minor element in the composition
But it is the rock who is the one with experience
And will still be there, when she is long gone.
So the contrast here lies in the element of time.
The moments that have just past, with which she is now finished
The time of her life?
And that patient rock that holds her
The backdrop upon which the scene plays itself out.
