Into the light

I shed layers

loosen weight oppressive

slip out from under real-life,

its cold, steel clutches,

and begin to breathe again:

Chest expanding

draws in salt-dusted air

sun-soaked limbs soften,

languid in water,

muscle memory awakens

recalling other seas, sands, shores —

dreams and imaginings borne upon the elemental crashing of waves.

I am still.

I am light.

I am breath-air.
