Was I drowning? Over and over – How far down – The wave took me – Like the smallest of pebbles – I saw light- Through half opened yes – Was Oddly calm – Afterward terror – Remembered – Scraps of a line – You can’t tell the horizon – Caught in the waters force so – It owned me entirely – Could not, should not reach – Over and over – How beautiful the light – Blue- Mermaid – Sea grass- Heard no rushing – And then out – on the rough sand.
