Cat nap dreams and breathing under water.



Tonight she is swimming.
Leaving the
Sidewalks,
Stop signs and
Traffic lights,
leaving it all with
T-shirt,
Shorts,
and Sandals.

Tonight she is swimming,
Holding her breath just below the surface level
just Silently
just Respectfully
just Thankfully:

! that thuh roolz$ cant' reech hur uhn-der whahter


and as she floats to the surface on her back and smiles simply up at the moon...
eVerYthing ElsE
sinks
to
the
sand...............................................................


tonight.
tonight she is swimming
and letting her mermaid hair
wave it all away.

Love the structure of the reverse alliteration of the first stanza and then the change to a free-form structure to reflect the content. Nice form.

Nice. The tone of that post comes through soft and clear.
