Gentle Spirit

Gentle spirit,

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.
