LOST IN WATER
Lost in water
It begins life as a newt
Or a tadpole
Uncanny resemblance to a sperm!
Therefore I wonder how much of our (my) DNA
Is shared with the humble frog.
Why am I so ebullient under water?
Donned in lycre!
I float and float.
I let the water take over my core.
My soul anchored
To the shores of the azure pool.
In the vast oceans,
My soul ebbs and flows.
The coral reef like an iridescent womb;
Smothers the fish eggs, then the fish.
Moonbeams cast an exquisite spell on the rivers deep.
I catch my own reflection in the river and smile.
I am a woman of water.
The particles of my DNA
Of water and water alone.
