Melissa Ingalls On Why I Swim

Melissa Ingalls On Why I Swim

I swim.
Crisp clean water.
Buoys dancing.
Bright blue sky.
Birds soaring.
I swim.
Adrenaline pumping.
Muscles tightening.
Heart pounding.
Lungs burning.
I swim.
A bright kayak.
My loyal guide.
Glistening paddles.
My mirrored twin.
I swim.
Water splashing.
Whistles blowing.
Excitement building.
People cheering.
I swim.

What a beautiful poem by Melissa Ingalls of Derby, Vermont.
