Memory

Was it a dream

the scintillating
sparkling
sunlight
A blueness
a calmness

A slow ecstatic sinking
fading
floating
hearing not hearing

a distant sound
laughing
almost drowned
by the silence


not fighting
The comforting arms
Of the waves

almost drowned

drowning

The ocean is as captivating as it can be treacherous, but drowning is such a quiet feeling. Each of these lines drives the reader deeper and deeper into the dream. Love it.
