Body of Water, Haikus 1–11/52

To the water’s edge
deep dive into the water
underwater, breathe

1/52

Went to other world
deep breath along rocks to edge
dance the precipice

2/52

Trip to the ocean
winter you will be alone
safe in crash of waves

3/52

Faraway city
delivered as waking dream
strive until the last

4/52

Walk along hot sands
we know our destination
ocean reveals us

5/52

Slip into the ice
pulse hurries along the melt
waft away as steam

6/52

Steady in high wind
roots embrace the cold dark seep
stand tall where night falls

7/52

Disarray of days
clarifies in winter cold
walk quiet, and see

8/52

In depths of seeking
looking back, wanting closed eyes
rush towards water

9/52

Let the mystery
be still, close your eyes, and rest
less will be the way

10/52

In the air, a hint
cooler, salty, deeper breaths
always find the sea

11/52
