i am swimming
swimming under water
the way i plunged into the waves
i don't know if up is up
or down is down
the water feels so good
so cool upon my overheated skin
the blue
not blue at all
immerged in it
why does loving
feel so good?
i would swim forever
if i only could
but my lungs are urging me
they scream for air
why do you take my breath away?
and even if i could
i am scared to breath
scattering this moment
of eternity

Wow! beautiful, Jozien!

I see you swimming, against the waves, but also flowing the flow.
Like life.
