Deep Water

Deep Water

 

sun-stunned dark water

touches curved blue atmosphere

ultramarine horizon invisible

 

skin darkens in fevered summer air

sweat a salty sheen

black curls halo over reddening ears

legs stiff at water’s boundary

 

plunge in, drown in brilliant delight

weightless, jubilant

float besotted

 

I learn to swim
