yesterday I swam in the river
I found the path
the trail which led down
I dreamed last week of swimming in the ocean
and since, I have had the desire
to be immersed in natural water
therefore I took the opportunity
seized the day, so to speak
and swam out, carried by the current
I floated, looking up into the sky
alone, on a waterway which eventually leads to the gulf
alone, totally alone and I felt an overwhelming joy
surprising myself but not really
how often am I afforded the chance
me and the palisades
just me, alone
