Poetry, we write poems

surround submerge

thursday’s we write poems no 29: swimming

The memory of the swim in amniotic fluid

been surrounded by water
since i can remember
the slosh and sway of warm liquid
turning and twisting
kicking and kayaking

floating in fetal formation
my heart beats to the
universal design of life
i hear her harmonic voice
composing the way

here i am a few
million breaths later
on my own unattached
surrounded by salt water

blue wave crashing fun
sun soaked nirvana
beneath the pull and push
of seven oceans
and worldly shores
i find my way

  1. it’s always great when we can find our way. i love the water too. seems i’m drawn to it. and lately, i’ve found myself at the nature preserves ponds enjoying the sights & sounds of nature. beautiful poem. hope all is well.

writing is everything...
