Made of Water

A cooling breeze steadies the soul
my toes in the silky sand
fondling the lingering warmth
as afternoon sighs into an evening

The salty water breathes heavily against the shore
deeply and rhythmically as if asleep

We as a race love the water
how it makes us feel weightless
lifting us away from the world

It’s a force to be reckoned with
and carries an elegant beauty
that touches the life of the soul

It is what we need and fear
a force of nature
the current of life
our connection to the universe

How did we forget we too are made of water?
it lifts and carries us
drowns and buries us
