It's a rainy Saturday - hurrah - and here's the launch bit for the third in the Wordsplash Poetry Puddle collection: Tread Water
she joins the YMCA
because she is afraid to fly
her dreams reveal no explosion
yet the plane is dismembered
holds the seat cushion
and treads water
Wordsplash Poetry Puddle: Tread Water taps into emotions and taps the typewriter. Some poems explore fears, dreams, and wayward paths. Other poems seek shelter in words. Dive into this collection, and then keep your head above water.
