a child
dwelling in me

her favorite thing
every summer
was floating
in the ocean

drifting afar
from what’s happening
in her life

trembling knees
frightened heart
all washed away

in the arms of
the warm water

voices of people
sounded away

… it felt
a different world

inhaling and exhaling

the constant breath
synchronized with
echoed through
her own chamber

the sun above her
glared so bright
made the world
in orange crimson red

she felt
yet enveloped
in the warmth of
love and light

i returned
