middle of blue

The crests of water splashed over my head

My gaze was obstructed by the salty breeze in my eyes

The sun was over head beating down
Streams of sun baked my crown

I tasted the salt running into my lips

It had been three hours

I bobbed with the waves

The feeling of isolation
Of helplessness
Of enormity is like nothing else

I struggled to lift my eyes to greet the sun above it

It was shrouded in thick haze

The swells crested snow tips and dissolved in avalanche

The power was endless

I flailed my limbs

Thinking the thousands of leagues below me teem nothingness and life

The sea engulfed me
