unexpected homecoming, 2020

I free my feet from my boots

my toes adjusting to the cold wet sand

shedding the outer layers until

there is little to protect me from the endless cool breeze

I begin a steady stride away from the warmth piled on the rock

directly into the cold, salty, waves of aquamarine and cerulean

the waves wash over my head

I break the surface with a gasp

a rebirth or baptism by the sea

it is an unexpected homecoming
