Underwater Contours Poem by Kim van Breda


' Underwater Contours”

Curves and contours testify
The mirror never tells a lie
Bathroom scale the confirmation
Body toning contemplation

Sub-aqua training fitness enhances
Submerged serenity with sparkling nuances
Gliding fulfilment and dissociation
Flooding the senses- underwater salvation

Upward blue curves denting the side
Stark white lines indicate and divide
Soft, silky, satin water caressing the skin
Breathing awareness deep from within

A swimmers experience provides compromise
Muscles respond as minds liberalise
Curves and contours deep below and submerged
Underwater encounters float boundless, resurged
