surrender, shimmer down
a cascading rush
stunned uncertainty
irresistably drawn
into whorling waters
only to be left mute, puzzled
on the floor of a dead ocean
no tide to bouy and toss
no winds to scatter the senses
reassuring ressurecting presence 
vanished, unseen 
muddy face, bruised soul
tired legs, worn feet
wonder, rise, sigh
scale rocky depths
emerge into mundane life
only to trip, to plunge
into another vast body
teeming with life
with promise
but i can already see
the water disperse
the floor rise up
to brush my feet
with gently apologetic kisses
