The Waves in My Ears

It’s meditative,

The waves in my ears, 

Floating with the tide, 

Water caressing my back, head, and buttocks,

A plump buoyancy present since my days of baby fat.

Old memories swirl inside. 

Dad teaching me the basics, 

Me, small-eyed and innocent

Still believing in unconditional support.

Now, I float with the power of physics 

In waves and pools and lakes.

Eyelids closed and kissed by sunlight,

The waves in my ears 

Embraced by the greatness of the waters

Unfettered Sunlight, unfettered life

An active type of meditation

Distant laughter passes me by

The waves are in my ears 

A tiny being facing the endless sky
