Inspired by Susan Bright's poem Ode To Swimming

we come to barton springs
swimmers stripped down to the cold and lovely truth
as we ply these sacred waters

like fish suspended in nature's chilling embrace
we roam the watery paradise of swaying plants
and limestone ledges
sweeping by shimmering light

explorers come in all shapes and sizes
each with their own adapted style
aquatic flair

across the surface horizontal
dancers work in a cadence of
bubbling breath
and splash
pulling kicking twisting
a breath of precious air

every visit to these waters offers
a new and different scene
a fresh play of light
a new mysterious creature or
crevasse to search

a place for youthful wonder and
the freedom deep within us

we swim into the magic of a world of water
