Peace under water

peace under water


from my Father

kept afloat

by each drawing breath

kept afloat

my dearest water bed

little bird

darling crane

graceful duck,

fly high

dive deep

dazzle me

with your wings

goose bumps

cold love

flowing through every crevice

filling me

fitting me

like a glove

this quiet moment

my sacred treasure

cleanses my being

makes me better

the sun on my belly

water in my ears

the wind in my nostrils

the way this water absorbs every tear

it turns my hair to satin

and weaves it like rattan.
