Baptismal Sea


by Stephanie Grace

She sits still, silent;
Staring:
Seeing sapphire waters rushing;
Surrounding toes,
ankles, thighs.

She remains still, silent;
Mesmerized:
Watches seductive tides pulsing;
Distant waves
rising, descending.

She sits still, silent;
Serene:
Resplendent skies smiling;
Sun stroking
scalp, skin.

She remains still, silent;
Transfixed:
Astral seas whispering:
Promising bliss,
everlasting happiness.

She is still, silent;
Steady:
Relinquishing humanistic woes;
Dismissing doubts,
frustration, angst.

She remains silent, smiles;
Succumbs:
Lets soothing seas encompass
Flesh, spirit: Soul.
Sadness subsides.
