oceans hold history.

chronicles.
stories. narratives. accounts.

of the mind. 
of the flesh.
of blood.
of spirit.

this is how the unknown is known.
given attunement and curiosity.
given consciousness and presence.
given roots. given ground.
given foundation.

life is awareness of self
and of other.

we are all social creatures.
with-ness is existence.

this, now:

i hear you approaching
from a distance. my body
and mind don't need
this distraction.

but.

the voice of communion
enters my body and
makes my flesh
twinkle.

you touch me with 
your serenity.

my throat fills with things
that don't need to be said.

come. let's sit together
on this firm earth
and feel the sturdy fence
rubbing against our shoulder blades.

let's tighten our fists until they hurt. though,
who's hanging on to anything?
i'm not. are you?

ha!
we all have secrets.

i have secrets.
you have secrets, too.

this little sanctuary is my secret.
and this little gateway is my redemption.

treasure. treasure.

what shall i do
with this extreme of serenity?

i glide, convinced
there is something for me, and
convinced i no longer need to seek it.


i turn my hands open.
my shoulders.
my eyes.

my body moves. 

motion.
groundedness.

anchor.
drift.

i arrive.

light.
flight.


no weight on my shoulders.
no burden to hold me down.
