Floating (Day 78)

She lay on her back, looking skyward
as the constellations passed overhead
and began their lazy descent.

Somnolent currents lifted and steered, 
rocking her so she drifted, 
embraced in a weightless waltz.

Oceans of ice slowly cooled her veins,
and numbness spread, transforming
confusion into a distant ache. 

And the tides sang in her blood, bestowing 
an ancient sense of belonging and knowing
the sea, which soothed her restless mind.
