Lent: Peace

amywink March 8th, 2018

It is difficult to explain
this peace I have now,
some depth beyond
I have felt before,
fathoms deeper,
as if in me,
I, in some cobalt sea,
rest suspended,
held equal to the
weight of water.

That I may rise
and by my breath
depart another
ordinary sea,
into this ocean,
I sometimes forget
that I may further dive
and with that same
and measured breath,
escape that rising
toward the chaos of
those remembered waves.
