morning swimmer

water-1018808_1920

shimmering bubbles
spirals
of withheld breath

curving fingers
slide through
silken water

flickering feet
the flash
of mermaid’s tail

dreaming swimmer
gliding
sleek and weightless

as below the
surface
muted time slows

and early light
refracts
in dancing waves
