Underwater, a poem written by LB Sedlacek at Spillwords.com
Jesper Stechmann



written by: LB Sedlacek



chewing gum
tiled lines
a glow stick
a dive stick
swim paddles
chemicals swirling
white cloud dust
swimmers of all
ages some moving
quicker than others
the water moving
with them in


sunlight and shadows


in the cool blue pool
