Swimmers

Some of us have oceans

All of us have sky

Some of us go swimming

All of us go by


Some of us are learning

All of us forget

Some of us are wealthy

All of us have debt


Some of us have houses

All of us have walls

Some of us have seasons

All of us have falls


Some of us go swimming

All of us go by

Some of us have oceans

All of us have sky

I'm reposting this to tell you that it is part of a new book by Hanan and me. Photos in full color by Hanan, poems by me, here is the link. Check it out!


The image above is little swimmers.

And listen to Mark Wade playing and singing this lyric here!

Nice write! I like how the lyric serves 2 "functions" - concrete and conceptual (metaphor). Hanan's diptych does as well. Bravo!
