I want to be a fish.
I want to swim gracefully and wide awake.
I want to open my eyes down under
and flap my excited little fingers.
I want to sway my arms in circles
or float while learning to whistle. 🙂
I want to freely move my small feet
and know what it feels to play with one’s precious breath.
I want to dance with water in a sweet rhythm.
Oh I truly, madly, deeply want to swim.
Never mind if I’ll get darker.
I know I’ll be happier (Masayang negrita. Masayang pritong isda.)
just to glide, jump, and dive wherever.
Thanks Mary for a quick yet fruitful session. Someday I’ll swim with you for real. 🙂
