Alka Balain, Poetry 2022 Shortlist

 The Swimming Prayer


Wading in the pool, the Sun spreads 

the watercolours of dawn.

I tri-part the water that cleanses my skin.

My fingers pen verses on its surface

after birthing unbidden in the night.

As the water whirls in love, 

I envision

You dancing in the spiral 

carrying me along,

and I carry You in me 

all day, my friend.
