Pools Of Water (revised)


Stepping into
opaque pools of water

a soft hand beckoned
come and enjoy
the flow

gentle waters splashed
around my ankles

I was stirred by their
energies captivated
by the movement

as we began to swim
strong arms encircled me

I was held breathless

carried into seventh
heaven never having been
there before

as pools of water
engulfed me I was taught
to swim.

    Learning swimming starts with getting into water. Pools of water engulfing and body progressing forward. Beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    Did you learn the breast stroke first
    one of mine was butterfly
    maybe the dog paddle
    but now to think about it I am sure
    it was the freestyle, simple but pure. (Report) Reply
