Learning to Float/ Hour 1

 

Inhale deep, lean back

Lapping water clogs my ears

Lift legs from slippery lake floor

 

Father’s hands hover

a cradle beneath me

Enveloped in water

 

Tilt chin to blue sky 

arms spreads wide, a water angel

“I won’t let you go.”

 

But

 

He does let me go

The buoyant force of water

Pushes against me

 

 I do not sink
