one morning step out

Updated: Aug 19, 2020

one morning step out

after a strong swim into big swell

muscles fully stretched out

breathe deepened and slowed down

turn for a last look

touch the surface and give thanks

wait to be gently thrown up the fine pebble shelf

by the next crashing wave

look to the grey blanket sky

high first swallows

focus on a lone gannet drifting

shinning white against metal grey sea

then break into a different place. being immersed in cold water changes a body. sometime when its wild and dark a crack opens. the energy of the sea seeps in. soul silt stirs and spills. overflowing.
