Immerse Into

Swell shocks cold
Sea drowns blinds offers
Strangled communion

And yet
You slip beneath frigid water
Into salty new life

Soul evaporates into heavens
Aeon raindrops
Construct this deliverance

Molecules there
When the word took
His first sharp inhalation

Breathe deep
And immerse into
An amniotic kingdom

Be born again
Gasp teeming heaven
Emerge more alive

And with myriad eyes
