In honor of the summer solstice…
She floats in the space where the water merges with the sky,
the horizon almost invisible, the sky becoming water, the water becoming sky.
The water cradles her, the sky supports her.
The water ripples below, the clouds undulate above.
Suspended between who she is in this moment and who she will in the next,
perfectly content to just be here,
in this moment,
her breath echoing beneath the water,
an ancient hum reverberating through her bones,
her shadow another presence beneath her,
reminding her of the dark that always exists
even under the brightest of suns.
