WE are bound to the land, though our souls long for the deep blue
WE are drawn to it, pulled by memories buried deep in our DNA
WE linger on the sand, our toes curling, grasping for purchase
WE wade into the white froth, each step a homecoming
WE are fearless as we dive into the aqua waves, eyes open
WE undulate, borne by liquid love, free of gravity at last.
