Take a swim in the night waters of the lake.
Feel the flow underneath you, as you
kick your legs and circle your arms.
Treading water makes you feel
like all the days worries are
pushed away with each motion.
Breathe deep, as you look up
to see the stars that watch over you.
Crickets sing a concert for your pleasure.
Slivers of moonlight dance on the waves.
Hear your laugh echo to the hidden shoreline,
The sound makes you laugh again, just to
hear your voice. The boat is barely within
reach, but it doesn’t matter.
Talk treason with your friend as you
circle each other and feel the relief
from the thick air.
Submerge your whole body.
Wet your hair, wet your soul.
Howl at the moon calling on Mother Nature
to join in the fun. She knows you are there
to be part of the universe.
She knows you are there.
