New Poem by me: Coming up for Air

Aquarium fish

Coming up for Air

Some people are water skiers through life
skimming the surface, moving quickly along
bumpily full of excitement and spray

Some people are snorkelers
independently languorous
hovering between atmospheres

Some people sit in the boat
watching passively
or driving others

Some people are scuba divers,
plumbing the depths in complete immersion
we need to be careful of “the bends”
and remember to come up for air.

Guess it’s time to refill my tanks again.
