Curves and contours testify
The mirror never tells a lie
Bathroom scale the confirmation
Body toning contemplation

Sub-aqua training fitness enhances
Submerged serenity with sparkling nuances
Gliding fulfilment and dissociation
Flooding the senses-- underwater salvation

Upward blue curves denting the side
  Stark white lines indicate and divide
Soft, silky, satin water caressing the skin
Breathing awareness deep from within

A swimmers experience provides compromise
Muscles respond as minds liberalise
 Curves and contours deep below and submerged
Underwater encounters float boundless, resurged

Kim van Breda—February 2013

    Thank you Jake. I value comments from a talented poet as yourself. This particular poem is inspired by my swimming training five times a week-- I love the serenity of being far away from "the maddening crowd"
