SWIMMERS

 

Angry sea

Swimming

One east one west

Splashing overarm

To calmer waters

Away from the swell

With words sinking

Into swirls and eddies

Sea weed or fish

Sliding slippery

Out of grasp.

 

Already

You’re so far away

Always a good swimmer

The tide turning

The words said

Floatable, reachable

Between heavy strokes

Despite fatigue

And reluctance

To grasp again

What was said.

 

As my feet touch ground

In the shallows

Words surface

On a rippling wave

Covered with

The oil of tankers

Of scum

And clinging animal life

The last words

You said to me

Let’s end

 

And I tumble on the shore

To watch you waving

Far out

At sea.

 

AERONWY  THOMAS
