Swimmer’s Ear

Swimmer’s Ear

Today I return to the pool,

Chlorine everywhere,
Moving in a rhythm that beats,
I am home, home, home. 
 
I feel awake again,
Better,
A swimmer, a fighter.
 
Good things are coming,
To me, with my wet hair and my swim bag,
Walking home in a rainstorm,
Savoring, the sunshine.
