I love these moments
Of glorious silence
With nothing
But solitude
To centre myself

It is the moment
In water
Head submerged
Breathing paused
With only the quickening beats
Of my heart
That tell me to rise
And breathe deeply

It is the moment
Floating on the surface
To see a sky full of stars
And measure
Against the great
Expanse of space

I am small
And alone
But I am not lonely
My life is filled with wonder
And sound

But in these small moments
Or silence
I find myself

I can hear 
My breathing
My heart beating
And my voice
As it is carried away
On the waves
