I saw the morning sun reflected in the waves that rolled towards me.
I felt the strength of the rays as they landed on my delicate skin.
The salt exfoliated my toes and feet and legs and thighs.
I surrendered to the water’s might as it overtook my height.
I submerged and allowed the wave to wash over me.
Helpless I was at the mercy of a power greater than I.
I let go and when i resurfaced and could take another breathe,
I breathed and knew in that moment
That is all I need to do.
