Immerse Into

Swell shocks cold
Sea smothers breath
Sub merged communion
Heart stopping -
Skin shrinks
And insides burgeon.

And yet

You slip beneath frigid water
Into salty new life.
Soul on fire
Something strangely
changed -
Eons raindrops make this moment
Of deliverance.
Raindrops there
when the word took his first sharp inhalation.

Breathe deep, brother.
Breathe deep, sister.

Drown with us
Immerse into an amniotic kingdom –

Be born again
gasp heaven and
emerge more alive
with myriad eyes.

(a poem, by Julia Pickerill )
