Dramatis persona*

helenhead Helen Chick

I've always wanted a bumper sticker that said "I'm a female, LDS/Mormon, Scout leading, geocaching, piano-playing, bicycling, mathematics educator with a PhD in maths ... and I VOTE"!

I think this makes me a minority group of cardinality 1!

* Since there's only one of me and "personae" is plural (I think), I've gone with dramatis persona.

91. Drowning [100 poems challenge]


91.          Drowning

Although it is a heartfelt wish
To swim as freely as a fish
And dive below without a nervous dread;
I find, instead, I shut my eyes
No matter how I strategize
To keep them open, staring straight ahead.

And so my time beneath the wave,
Is short, because I’m not so brave,
The reason for my timid state I share:
It really doesn’t seem to me
The safest place for one to be
Since there’s a quite unhelpful lack of air.

Comments: I can swim, but I have never been a confident swimmer, and going underwater is not my most favourite of activities.

Themes to come: 92. All That I Have; 93. Give Up; 94. Last Hope; 95. Advertisement; 96. In the Storm
