Lapping Ideas

Lapping Ideas

Backstroking across the ceiling
white gulls of light arcing
wing refraction

from the high intensity bulbs above
that shekel-flash on the blue body waves of the pool
bright incandescent—dare we say transcendent—lights

swimming in this liquid marble
strikes of lightening broken
then broken on the waves

like archetypes that shimmer in this cave
and electrify under water across the blue cement
chimeras of our mental synapses

After the swim, stepping out the glass door
into the brilliant sunlight--

Shades of Plato.

In the Light,
