I watched her swim up into the arms of 

a flickering sunset,

mouth open,

letting rain

fall on a velvet tongue.

She was a whisper in

the arms of horizon,

lightning strikes 

falling beneath her

every stroke.

I followed her to 

the edge,

until the weight 

of muddy shores,

stifled my breath

and forced my 

knees unto the Earth.

In silence,

I devoured the sight,

praying for the strength

to find my way.
