A Better Person

I glide through water like

cold silk in the 

morning lap swim. 
All is quiet and invites 

contemplation

 as with each lap

I breathe deeply 

thinking of Love 

on the inhale 

and Peace 

on the exhale. 
Afterwards, I 

climb out of the pool

and chat 

with a fellow swimmer

as we dry off. 

“I’m a better person 

after I swim”, she says. 
That thought lingers

as I smile at people

as I leave the gym. 

Glowing in open hearted 

friendship 

and ready for the day. 

We are better

than we 

were
