This Poem Can Swim

Poem By Richard Lighthouse

i trained her well.
behind kickboards, at first.
splashing. exuberant. fresh.

daily practice.
a little further.
more.

then, trips from the edge.
cautious return.
gaining confidence.
never far from safe.

then diving under.
inhale and surface.
growing in conviction.

finally,
in long strokes.
flooding the senses.
out stretched arm,
pulling thru papered
immersion.

no more fear.
no disbelief.
nothing held back.
this poem can swim.
