she swims alongside the current she

follows the sun into the sea

after many days of searching they

presumed her drowned

they knew nothing of the changes or

how she made it through

she may as well have died

she cuts through open water 

she moves the breath of life

she has come awakened

to meet the deepest sea

swim in blue

i finally used the key to open the gate and let myself in. summer was over and i was thankful. i set the water in motion, immersing myself complete. what a sensation. i left it alone and a trail of dripping wet. above and looking down from where i hung my clothes, i noticed the light show. a translation of my form. a liquid print. what was left of my rhythm. illuminated by the sun in blue. something understood me.
