Joy to Swim


The crisp water awaits
My toe reaches the top
A ripple begins
Making tiny waves
My whole foot incased
Within the water
At the edge
Both feet engulfed
Stepping in further
Not too fast
Slowly emerging myself
And then I dive deep
Swimming along the bottom
Breathing bubbles
Exploring the depths
Then wiggling my way up
Carefully moving around
Not to disturb others
Each of us exercising
Our own little routines
Getting those core muscles
Strong and healthy
Dive again to the bottom
Like a dolphin
Amazing feeling free
Just me swimming deep
Down under the water
Looking up to see
The ripples and waves
Gliding over me
