Poem: I Don’t Swim Alone

I don’t like to swim alone
The neighborhood dogs already know
That’s why they tumble and play
At the water’s edge
And wait for me

I don’t like to swim alone
That’s why the fish play near me
Popping up, flopping up
Out of the sea
Randomly
Getting a giggle and a gurgle out of me

I don’t like to swim alone
That’s why the seagulls come
When I am on my back
We glide and float
As a team
They accompany me

I don’t swim alone

About the poem:

Today was Day 1 of my 31 day personal swim challenge that I just made up last night. I rode my bicycle to the beach, swam for about 30 minutes, drank a Pocari Sweat (great name, right! Korean energy drink) and rode home. (By the way, there are several family-run shops right along the beach!)

This month, I’m delivering myself to the arms of sea for my healing time.  In the water, I am at home. As I transition from South Korea to the US, I know from past experience, it’s big. I’m up for all the healing I can get. The sea is pretty big, so I’ll be  just fine.
