Water

Calm, soothing waves,

Washing on the shore.

Quiet rhythm, shaken

By a boat sailing at large.

 

Peaceful contemplation

Of a life-tight, natural element.

I am attracted. Irresistibly.

Drawn in. I don’t want to fight it.

 

I am giving in. I am shedding off

My clothes, layer after layer.

I am unbound. Liberated

From the grasp of social life –

 

Conventions.

 

I let my feet dip in the liquid matter.

One. Two. One step after another,

I feel the enveloping body relieving

My heavy flesh of its weigh, eased

 

From its own prospect. Untied, free to express

Its moves. Unburdened by forethought.

Merging with its environment. Reacting

As one. Swimming. Navigating. Free to feel.

 

Light yet overwhelmed.

Surrounded by softness.

Untouched yet nurtured.

Caressed. Floating. Liberated.
