Panic! Fear. Save me!

Muscles spasming, lungs like peas.

My first winter swim.



I have been thinking about testing and stretching my poetic muscles for a while now and as if Universe somehow new about these plans of mine, there comes Writing 201: Poetry! So for next couple of weeks or so (as I can’t promise I’ll keep the prescribed schedule), I will be posting my attempts of poems according to the given assignments.

Writing 201: Water

    Nice. Written from personal experience I assume?

      Thank you Trent. Indeed this is drawn from personal experience – the things I do for a good cause… 100m charity swim, mid-December.

    Good job on joining in with the writing 201 it definitely is a fun way to get the poetic juices flowing. Nice haiku to start it off, that simile, was breath taking. Lol nice piece.

    I like the ‘lungs like peas’, it really gives me that sense of struggling to catch your breath!

      Thank you Laura. It was quite a shocking experience to enter the cold water – I knew the water will be cold but I didn’t expected such violent reaction from my body!
