I took a hard look at the new day
the shortness of life brimming over
the way I walked to the end of the dock and back
to complete the tasks like I had the day before
and the day before that.

I held my breath, took a leap
and sank deep without knowing how to swim
in the ordinary.
I opened my eyes underwater
swallowed reverence for what floated in front of me
breathed in the synchronicities
came up gasping with a bucket splashing over
mud in my toes, sand in my clothes
weeds in my hair, shells in my pockets
blue in my mouth, waves in my ears.
