Swim

I cannot explain the beauty and release of sliding in to a swimming pool. Cool water moving over my sun scorched body, tiny air bubbles releasing as they are forced from the fine hair of my arms, galavanting  gloriously to the surface, to expand and rejoin their siblings in the sky. 

Water undulating across my muscles as they release all tension worn like armour, relaxing briefly only to tense up, as muscles and ligaments are reactivated, working in harmony with my bone, breath and mind . The tension moving with rather than against me, warming my joints, energy flooding cells, activating synapses, lengthening, stretching, repairing . 

Diving deep, rhythmic breath, hypnotizing, anxiety and reality melting away.
