Water Worship September 17 2014, 0 Comments

I worship the healing properties of water — physically and emotionally — it always does the trick. Restoring life to the places in me that have died. Here's a poem for Water Wednesday.

Sometimes total immersion 

is what is called for. 


Diving in 

the shock and awe of beautiful water 

sheds anxiety's slimy sweat.


Slicing through 

exertion fashions an equilibrium 

of water cool, 

air crisp, 

blood warm. 


Surrender, release, allow. 


Suddenly floating 

with each exhale.
