Night Swim


Open arms like Jesus
Walk into the sea
Hazy constellations
No one here but me

Whitecaps skimming quickly
Frosting on the waves
Water black, unknowable
A trusting heart is brave

Sinking to my knees
A bather in the night
Rocked by lunar currents
Meandering delight

Close your eyes, imagine
It’s you who are the sea
Salty, warm and cleansing
Purifying me
