Undertow

Self Portrait

A reader dips a hand

Into swift water

Waiting in initial silence

To be taken by the current

 

An author swims

Without life preserver

Arms….splashing

Yelling towards the shoreline

  1. The poem gave me a gut-chuckle, and then a quiet moment of self reflection. It is rare for writing to do both in a concise manner. Well done.
