Cold

Sink beneath the surface,
Heat drawn from my veins.

My body goes numb,
My mind awakens.

Breath is shallow,
Fear creeps in.

Pause, inhale, pause, exhale,
Breath, thank, wait, release.

Anxiety dispelled,
Leaving room for something new.

Schools of fish wander past,
Stones polished till smooth.

Waiting for something,
Will I know when it’s here?

The sun retires as the star dance on stage,
I rise from my shrine.

Drip dry,
Who I was is no more.

Bare feet,
The canopy blankets overhead.

Raw and vulnerable,
Back on the earth.

The wind closes my eyes,
With gentle hands of a guardian.

Perspective changed,
I remember your name.
