Healing Waters

What a day
for Moses to swim like a giant seal
merging nostrils to water
showing his toothy grin
his expression of joy
while Indigo holds onto his leash
being towed along like Dennis the Menace
Viki on her back
encouraging Mo to swim, swim and swim
like a mighty tiger in the salty sea
it was good to merge myself
allowing the warm water to soak my skin
walking on blades of grass
so hot from the sun
nearly scorching my feet
dogs now sleeping on cold, tile floors
twitching as if they still swim
passed out after an afternoon
where playfulness becomes an instant release
from the chapters that have dragged me down
the sea shall call me home
