Synchronized Swimming

Cascade rivers overflow
cross the valley floor
with fluidity of wind
merge into Pacific shores
whalesong fills the sea
where a frenzy of flukes
twirl deep gray with half
a shade from indigo,
rocking flimsy water craft
tourists don eye extenders
and spout winners' words ~
unearth a primal age

These words are the essence of fluidity.

In my mind's eye I traveled the waterways to the sea, and swam with the whales. Really beautiful.

Thanks for your kind words at Poefusion. I am pleased you enjoy the site so well. Happy Writing~

Your fluid words made me homesick for the Cascades, though I am glad I won't be there this fall to see the resulting floods in Snoqualmie Valley again.

"rocking flimsy water craft

Awesome word play, Susan.

Once again you paint a word water color in my mind. I am one of those tourists!
"Cypress" is a very beutiful watercolor. Your talent is as big and as deep as the ocean.
I came looking for inspiration today and I found it.
Your words and your watercolor fired my spirit.
Thank you,
