  205.     

The Swimmer

the young swimmer swum
in the bobbing of the waves
her nubile body lapped into
the mouth of the sea
floating like a bubble in the water
her skin shimmered in the sunlight
while the ocean washed her
with its salt dew
and opened its heart
with the warmth of its waves
and the swimmer swum
in its homeland

  206.     

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.

J-First Summer

Sitting on the porch
Swimming in the pond
Summer pastimes
Earned with winter work
Reading, reaping rewards
Lazily letting life be leisure

You sit your porch
I swim my pond
We reach across the miles
With mind, heart, telephone

Now and then
The distance too far
For our being
A car, yours or mine
Covers the miles
We can no longer
Tolerate

January 27,1997

  208.     

When I Die

When I die
I want to fly
soaring high
above the trees
and the seas

When I die
I want to swims
swim with the fishes
under the oceans
and in the lakes

When I die
I want to live
be free and live my way

When I die
I want to live and be free.
