L’ETOILE(The Star)

L’ETOILE(The Star)

Unable to swim
but willing to dive

I plunge
from the honeymoon

boat left bobbing
on a blue

created with
sunlight & water

I dive
to the bottom of the sea

become a fish
flippered & snorkled

hold now
a starfish

clutched in my hand

fascinated until
gazing up

I see above me
the dreaming boat

asleep on
a thin blue line

of sunlight & water

& I
70ft below
it

I suddenly realising
I can’t swim

somehow make it
back to the surface

holding the starfish

that you sleeping now

clutch
in your dreaming

hand.

How Did You Meet Your Wife?

Swimming the English Channel,
struggling to make it to Calais,
I swam into Laura halfway across.
My body oiled for warmth,
black rubber cap on my head,
eyes hidden behind goggles,
I was exhausted, ready to drown,
when I saw her coming toward me,
bobbing up and down between waves,
effortlessly doing a breaststroke,
heading for Dover. Treading water
I asked in French if she spoke English,
and she said, "Yes, I'm an American."
I said, "Hey, me too," then asked her out for coffee.


Anonymous submission.

I Can't Swim

I do not understand
why certain people
Cannot Swim
I mean even a piece of wood
can Float
it must all be all in there Mind
cause I am sure!
If you would throw them in the
Deep End
They Will Swim! Guarantied
or Float for a bit anyways,
before sinking
I mean it must look silly
All them Big Adults
Still in the Kiddies Pool?

Invitation

So let us be off to the depths of the sea
to hurry through saltworks
fetch shells and make love
backs to dunes
and dive down the blue there
there to swim until spent Come let us be off to the depths of the sea
and we'll swim until spent
down and down and down and down
wave-heaved and dolphin - hastened
Celebrants of the jungles of the floor of the sea Come let us take off for the depths of the sea
we'll whirl there, we'll chant
till love, love's alone left to do Come let me escort you to the depths of the sea
Extend me your hand
And my dream does the rest
