To Find a Way Up From Underwater

To Find a Way Up From Underwater


So many hours spent in staring up

from this cold place of summer buoyancy,

an underwater language fluency,

spirit, a forbidden chalice or cup.

This time I find that I will never see

through straps of leaves that float around my eyes

or move at all through grip around my thighs

and soon this water will erode whats me.

To know in time that you can reach surface

to see the suns lonely lost reflection

and to know the moments you will feel its heat

the powerful concept that once was us

to break through under water surf-action,

my glance above where air and water meet.

Things have changed over the years. My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I have a passion for writing short fiction and poetry. I started writing for TCE around 2015 and since then I have finished two collections of poetry "Six Years of Service" and "The Rhyme of the Ancient Middle Class" both available on Amazon and plans for more. I share a weekly poem for TCE every Saturday. I started work on my first novel and I am using TCE to share my progress as I go. I share new excerpts of this work every weekend. A Science Fiction novel that I hope is enjoyable to read. I currently live in Lemmon Valley NV with my family. I am excited to share my poetry and my writing. If you desire to find my other work on the internet feel free to stop by my website The website offers articles on poetry, poems, and links to all my other writing.
