A body in the water

All was quiet
Listening to my heart beat
I centre my breath
I feel my body lift with every inhale
And fall with every exhale
Of creation

Exhale,
By body descends and I lose all senses

Inhale
I ascend,
Only when I am hungry
And ache for breath
I breach the waters
Nose first

Exhale
Before I my vision clears
My ears and eyes submerge again
My senses becoming muddled
Losing perspective
of what’s beyond the surface

Inhale again
My sight returns
My hearing slightly clearer
I can catch a glimpse

Before I need to exhale again…
