Love Affair With the World

The ocean beckons me

A tempest, a temptress

A terrifying yet tranquil mistress.


To breathe, oh but to breathe

Is not quite enough.

I desire immersion,

Baptism into a new life.

Both born of water

And of spirit.


The ocean beckons me.

Neither here nor there,

I am both here and there.
