Welcome to my very own Creative Writing Month where each day of the month I am focusing on a topic and spending fifteen minutes reflecting and writing as inspired by the topic. For more information about why and how check out my post, Writing Down the Bones.
Today’s topic: Write about swimming.
I took a deep breath and plunged my whole self below the surface of the undulating water. The coolness surrounded every inch of my body and bid me to relax each muscle. As I held my breath I pushed off the ground below me with my legs and surrendered my body to the waves. The strength of my arms began to guide my unanchored frame through the tunnel they had created. Pushing aside all resistance I continued to press forward. Through the throwing off all my control I experienced tranquility.
