Your distant call alerts me in the shallows.
Like a hesitant deer, I search my field of vision
For the source of the sound. Across the horizon
I see your radiance pulsating near the depths.
You beckon me to join you
And, so, I float in your direction. At first,
I am frightened to leave the familiar
Shoal that I have known for so long.
Yet, in your presence—in the depths—
I am energized and weightless.
You buoy my soul with effortless joy
And I am comforted by your existence.
As I leave behind the bitter sweet waters of past,
The splashing of fresh waters lap at my heart
And I know…with you, I am home.
