2022 Hour 1:Taking a dip

It sounds like a good idea
summer heat and memories of
childhood fondness 

And yet,
the preparation seems daunting
an un-natural aversion washes over

Pressure and curiosity mount
finally at water’s edge

The first toe in
sends an electric ‘no’
up the leg and it becomes impossible
to imagine full submersion

Memories unite and nerves jangle
jumping in, eyes and breath held tight

“Come in, the water feels great!”
