that deep and crying ocean
sunlight like fire flickering
on fickle waves of glass
the taste of salt and sea
as you breathe in deep
and abandon the earth
plunging, cold, translucent
weightless, drifting through
memory and time, alive
as you'd never been before
surging up infinitely
as the surface breaks
and shattered raindrops fall
as you soar beyond the world.
