I felt my heartbeat the entire time
It almost scared me, until our hands brushed .
I kept my eyes on yours;
not wanting to waste a minute.
The old married pair swim neck to neck,
his colors flamboyant green & purple,
hers dull brown to protect their babies.
I felt aligned with her; no predator
would show interest – a fine disguise.
Her husband though, the fancy man,
swims with no knowledge that his
fine suit might be his undoing.
Perhaps not fair, but Nature knows best &
who are we to protest?
Meanwhile, my heart keeps beating in time
with my desires, just watching the two swim;
so easy being them.
