She believes she is born of water
a deep voice full of current
an extract of sand and salt

A ripple of seagulls in the wind
white deflections perfectly timed
untouchable mist in her hands

When you hold me, she says
I feel a loon’s wild eternity
in your heart

a beating of thunder and wings
driftwood pulled under
by the strength of waves

Hold me, she says,
until I no longer wash to shore
until our bodies become the depth

I am here, I answer, just above you
a floating lotus
a gentle sway of ebb and flow
