UNDERTOW

UNDERTOW stress and undertow pull my calamitous legs hourglass empties sand ~ sun beads on my brow the sea encircles my flesh driving me under ~ but for God, i’d drown my spirit within me fights my tired flesh gives in ~ God catches my fall he carries me to the shore he kisses my head Kim Rodrigues © 2017 A series of haiku

I love this, Kim. Reminds me of that feeling, the water rushing out, carrying away the sand under your feet, a sensation scary yet beautiful.
