First Step

My eyes filled with blue
My legs felt the cold
My skin feels the heat
On a blue oceans bank
I am sitting in calm

Thinking about its calm
Thinking about its water
About its tides and depth
Its currents and circulations
And also its deadly species

I am also thinking about
Its mother-of-pearl inlay
Of ores mined in its bed
About decorative shells
And many more materials

Now I am at its bank
To swim its blue water
To swim its rough tides
To swim all its currents
To swim its life for life

Life may end in gold
Life may end in blue
However it may end
Whatever may happen?
At least ends by trying

So I moved from bank
And took my first step
My first step into ocean
No idea where will I end
But had taken the first step

I went fishing, for you
Well more net dipping
Not wanting to upset the balance of nature
I clumsily caught you, fishing.....
Gently I placed you  in my ice cream tub 

I fed you with images, words and honesty 
You ate eagerly, it appeared to please
I studied what I could see and tried to learn it by heart

I put the tub in the water
As I had been taught at home
So you could swim away freely and unharmed
I watched you swim 
but by surprise, you swam back

And whilst I smiled the deepest your wish to return
I did not want to tame you all the same
You are not mine to keep
You belong in wider waters
But my ice-cream tub sits below the surface
Dear friend, if you are curious, swim by when ever
I may just, by coincidence walk past and peer in.

Life Springs in Surf

Life springs up in surf
bobbing in pleasure and pain
Now above the waves in to the sky or
at times biting sands on the bed.

They all come in now and then,
Some lift out but never for long
Some even hold and cry together for a while
The next its all alone
on the waves and trying hard like all others
to learn and to swim, swim and swim

Learning to swim, inching the years behind
Reflecting in retrospect of
the trophies and humble pies they gave us on the way
The itching and burnings of salt on the nape
Of the words of encouragement heard and forgotten
Searching for those, who held us and cried together.

Life is what the sea of time makes,
where the waves of events lead to
the efforts, the people and the trophies - away
deep inside and
one day ashore - inert and invisible

Typical Summer Day

Today was just great
Swimming with friends
This lake is the perfect place
To learn how to swim
The very first time

Talking and talking
Floating about on the lake
Waves drifting us on in
While we talk away

A friend from a far
That is coming this summer
Not being able to wait
We take a little walk
And there it is
A car with that plate

On knocking the door we go
Frapping on the door
Come to find out
It is just the father
Of the handsome prince
I've known for years

Our hopes all up high
Trashed to hear
That he will not be here
Until the end of next month

So home we go
More swimming we do
Talking about the prince
That will be here next month
Knowing what I have said to them
Dreaming over him
They are dying to meet this handsome prince

Today was just great, but as for tonight
Two dogs in the camp
With just the slightest noise
Sets the barking with a ring in the place
It's driving me crazy, but thank you now
The two fo them are settling down
I guess it's been great today
For tomorrow I must work
Only half a day and pick up a dog
For a friend of mine

So for now I guess it's been fun
On a summer day
Swimming with friends
And dreaming over the handsome prince
