Early Swim

Early Swim

written by: Kara Jackman



A man by the sea
Comes out of his house
Stretches his arms
To the morning sky.
Around him gulls
Swoop, glide,
Making the only sound for miles.
His silent, blue shack,
Seems to sleep
While the ocean
Teems with life.
The dock
Lying before him
worn and tired
as if part of the world around him,
stretches to the sea.
He jumps and hits water.
Water as far as his eyes can see
At this time of the day.
The dock shakes
An earthquake
Shattering the once placid sea.
