Dancing with water

He takes the lead and holds you in his strong arms, reassuringly
He is sea god
You trust completely and let go
while dancing with water

If it were up to me

If it were up to me, I wouldn’t care. I wouldn’t smile. I wouldn’t talk much. I’d be sitting by the beach all day, writing, quenching thirst with juice in the other hand. Bare skinned and in a swimsuit, lounging and dipping into the smelting hot golden sand. Letting my skin bake into the brownest that it could possibly get. If it were up to me, I’d have coconut oil in my hair soaking into each strand hungrily. Squinting my eyes and looking up, I’d watch the movement of the sun all day as it glides across the sky from east to west, or up and down… whatever it is that it does. Time would go as slow as it possibly could go. I’d stare into the face of the distant horizon, thoughtless and unafraid. If it were up to me, I’d have an ardent romance and risk it all. I’d just twirl in trance to the staccato echoes of the sea, ’till who knows when, aimlessly.

We feast

Each of my fingers imprint love over your back. Scented warm rose water ooze out of my pores. You’ve managed to unlock a chamber of my heart and decided to open it. And now you take care of the rest, as you hold me together. Bundling a puddle. Holding onto a slippery fish. You’ve owned it. You take the responsibility. It was your choice, your game, and you’ve won. And now you feast,
We feast,
In full content
With ease
Effortlessly
Hand to skin, and skin to hand
Pore to pore, and drop to drop
Back and forth
And forth to back
In a circle, in a pod floating down a heavenly path
We feast, head to head
And heart to heart.

Sunset Swim

Whiff of summer breeze
Dipping into vast, cool water
Encloses shy skin like some secret seal.
Encircling ripple in velvet motion, expanding larger and larger
Hair rolling away further… further
Plunging like a fish, letting fin disappear
Raising like dolphin over sizzling sweet air.

Falling back, playful feet flip and splatter
Scattered dew drops on lashes tingle and drench
Sky above so blue with moon laughing over
Airplane and birds greet and circle under
As the sun sets on the side, pouring into the pool of wonder.

Easy rock and lull afloat blissful surrender
Minuscule being amid an endless suspension
Free at last, and one with water
Thirst of the body, submissively quenched.
