FINAL BAPTISM

water-1209074_960_720

She stood on the shore

Skipping rocks

Watching rings scatter

Clouds ripple

Dance then settle

She stood on the shore

Mentally diving

Through hoops

Connection fading

Thoughts drowning

She stood on the shore

Stripped naked

But for the weight

Of the rocks she wore

Around her neck

She stood on the shore

And fastened more

Around ankles

And wrists and waist

Until she found no more

She stood on the shore

And walked into waters

Cold and smooth

Until only her eyes

Could see the world

She stood in the water

Breathing it in

The coolness a fire

Burning the whateverness

The unholiness within
