August Strokes
By Kathleen Finn Jordan
Inspiration piece

Slipping into the liquid aqua glassed pool
These are the days of leisure swims
Summer season — autumn of life
The swish and swirl of silent strokes
Cut the flow and propel me on
Quiet like the fish—splash days and dunking past
Hobbled on land—this medium transforms
Returns me to the easy moves of youth
Refreshes, restores, reminds that life is gift
The wrapping ages, the ribbons dull, but
The treasure remains
August strokes …fluid, old new, transforming.
