The channel or channel swimmer
You stand on the edge
waves lapping at your neoprene clad feet.
In your gut emotions wage war
provoked by whispers of darkness, sharks,
and endless miles of open water.
Yet, out there is the siren call of land.
Just offshore bobbing
in a liquid trail of moonlight
the boat waits for your signal.
You raise your hand
tightening the strap of your goggles
and step into the water.
