WILMA SEVILLE

Poetry Pick



FLOATING

by Wilma Seville

Minnows swim around pink runners
As I forge ahead into deeper water
Shades of green and blue shimmer
Sun beats down on bathing cap
St. Lawrence River feels cool
On such a hot and steamy day
I float upon my back
Eyes closed against the sun
Water laps gently over supine body
Arms move up and down to gentle rhythm
Feet flutter as I lazily float
Movements calm but deliberate
At peace with my little world
All anxieties at bay
One with the water
One with the world

From Tower Poetry, Vol. 59 #1, Summer 2010
