Until I Can No Longer Remember

Until I Can No Longer Remember

a sense of
caught once never gone
Chlorine sharp
sun-shot sparkles on my arms
that ripple tattoos

of aqua
freckles. Shoulder to
my arms stroke
my shadow swimming solo
along the bottom

of the pool
Elongated and
slipping past
with no sound
but that of silver bubbles
surfacing to breathe

    • I think this poem expresses the feeling I get in swimming outdoor in the sun. An experience that has never failed to make me happy and that I always can call to mind as one of those things that will always comfort me and remind me of how good life can be.
