Blue stream—

When I crash from the pool deck into water

I am a dream closing in over my own head.

I feel like a ripe strawberry

I feel like a thousand minnows

I feel like a Persian carpet.

Took me so long to find out

I had to lie back lie down.

Took me this long to find out

Trust the water and I won’t drown.

Like the dashing swim of the ancient turtle

I give myself to the water

Every jump, every breath, every hurdle.

As if an artwork on display
Of gears and hands
And wire-thin bands
That glisten in dim candle play." -Janice T., Clockwork[love that poem, dont know why, im not steampunk]
