Swimming


SWIMMING,

by Roger Fritz, 10-24-93



The Goddess parts the rushes with her hands,
the dark coils of her hair almost impossible to see
in the dappled shadows,
and her blue eyes lift to meet mine
across the ripples.
I had only thought to go fishing.
Suddenly I catch a glimpse of glory,
and suddenly I'm captured by glory.
The water turns to turqouise,
and I wade through waist-deep jewlelry.
The Goddess smiles,
and steps into the water.
She had only thought to swim,
and dives in.
The water turns electric,
and my skin turns to topaz.
My eyes itch,
and I remember everything the
Goddess has ever seen.
My throat burns,
and life runs through me like an elixer.
My bones turn to obsidian,
and I remember sunsets from
the mouth of the cave.
The Goddess surfaces,
and laughs,
and grabs me.
And we tangle in blue
and bubbles
and the songs of mermaids.
The river quivers like a medallion,
and nature sings to us.
Ecstacy remembers me,
and I remember her,
and the antique feeling unfolds in my heart again,
as new as snow.
