Immersed in velvet softness
Water flowing across my face
Rhythmic movements have
My body smoothly gliding

As my mind unwinds
Leaving the clutter behind
Releasing with a freedom
That grows as days go by

The morning swim
Draws my soul
Longing for freedom
From gravity's pull,

From reality's restrictions
Body moving to a rhythm
Synchronized with breath
Mind opening to emptiness

Awakening with mounting desire
To reach for those moments
Being caressed by the water
As I mesh with softness of time.

Joanie Freeman,  Charlottesville, Virginia
