In My Mind's Eye

In My Mind’s Eye

The early rising sun

lightly laid

first fingers

on the still dark water

as you swam alone

in the hotel swimming pool,

your smooth blonde head held aloft,

a gently rounding ripple

containing you in a soft embrace

as you calmly parted the water,

a flowering water lily

drifting serenely

across a dawn dappling pond.
