Try it, you’ll like it

I can’t hold my breath that long

A minor detail

Tasty Morsel

Feb 20, 2020

By Danielle Zepess

I lurk

I rise

I lunge

I feast

savoring this tasty treat

It starts

It cries

It flails

It groans

as my teeth crunch up its bones

Advice from a fellow swimmer

Feb 19, 2020

By Michael Zahn

As you crawl through fog, wind, waves and wakes,

on Cane or any other lakes,

don’t assume the boaters see you!

You might wear orange,

you might wear yella,

but you are still invisible, fella!

The boaters don’t mean to clip your ass,

but you are slow and they are fast.

So please show caution, give right of way

and live to stroke another day.

Unashamed

Too fat to be a swimmer?
Stupid, foolish prattle!
Look at the bodies of the folks
who swim the English Channel

What about alligators?

The lake’s an invitation —
take it if you dare!
Afraid today? No will to stay?
Tomorrow she’ll still be there.

Lovers’ Quarrel

Feb 19, 2020

By Michael Zahn

The water never lies to me,
it slaps and pushes back.
I have to say its honesty
is an aphrodisiac

Candy Cane

Feb 19, 2020

By Michael Zahn

This little lake can take me
where no one else can go.
I kick and stroke and breathe and hope
and set my world aglow!

We meet again

Feb 19, 2020

By Michael Zahn

I want the lake to like me,
to share in my delight
to splash me back and tickle me
as we again unite
