Every time I stand on the edge somehow it always reaches me. Even when I awe from a far, It somehow finds a way to mist and I can smell its fragrance in the air.
As eager as I was, it awaited me with a splash.
I allowed my body to relax and slowly found bliss.
I decided to release all fear, to dive in was my best bet.
Unfortunately, it was a bit more powerful than I had expected.
I found myself submerged as I penetrated, I was able to slice the surface.
I remember my first encounter, I was so nervous and anxious in the same breathe.
I decided to float, but every time I got comfortable it tested my ability to ride the waves.
Every time I am looking to relax, it challenges me.
I look forward to its feel upon my skin, how welcoming it is as I seem to be suspended in a place of fluidity.
I was met with a wave that quickly took me under.
In it, I carried all my burdens but was oddly weightless.
In it, I found danger and limitless possibilities one in the same.
In the splash, I found life and death staring directly into one another’s eyes.
As much as I enjoy calm waters, sometimes I love to know that the waters push back.
As we chase, dive, and play it never leaves with anything but a REFRESHING SPLASH!
