I Think I’ll Go for a Swim, Within NaPoWriMo1

Today marks the first day of National Poetry Writing Month and a great way to get back into one of my fave genres…. join me, would you, for a quick swim? 

Insights idle inside while

Another long day draws to an end
It’s time to go for a swim, within 

Reaching new heights, on updrafts  

We climb, seeking higher perspectives 

Unseen while trudging in daily woes.

Where the currents take us,

Nobody in a body really knows 

Forgotten fears of heights,

We’re now unbound 

Floating so high above the ground 

Being ourselves, taking a swim 

From within, is a flight of fancy 

Where dreams swirl and new paths

For the future are created.

Yes, let’s remember to once 

Again swim…

      1. Carl Jung suggests that our creative outlets can help us in healing from within. Poetry can be a fun way to move through our stuff. Hope you can find the time for you to heal through play. It doesn’t all have to be hard work ❤
