Submerging my heavily pregnant body in the warmth of the pool,

Trademark  pink  goggles enclosing  green eyes.

Weightless I move slowly through the water,

Taking my baby for a swim – rocking side to side,

The silence under the water is sublime,

The silence lulls me into a multitude of future dreams,

How I will love you when you are born,

The things we will do together,

Oblivious of the vast changes in my life’s landscape ahead.

The end of each lap – rub my stomach in circular motions,

You have gone to sleep.

Heave myself from the pool- proud of my huge rounded “baby” tummy.

I know you will love water just like me.
