Picture It & Write – Treading Water

Standard

Sunday rolls around again and it is with excitement (to write something non-Nano) that I pick up the prompt from ermiliablog. Enjoy!

Oceans cool my body

as I submerge my skin

deeper in,

deeper in.

My eyes stare at  clouds

dancing on the edge of

an infinite horizon,

My mind has already travelled home.

In stillness, my body welcomes

the water lapping to and from my being.

I know one day these same waters

Will bring me home to you.

You who may not be waiting

for time

or tide

or man.

  1. Ooo, the ending. I loved how you split the lines up with ‘You who may not be waiting/for time/or tide/or man’. It gave it a slightly eerie edge that I enjoyed. I’m curious as to who ‘you’ is. An interesting piece, Neens! 🙂 Thanks for contributing this week!
