All's Well That Ends Well

Ungentle, heaving

riptides push young wet crown on

final slip to light.

Skin aflame with cold,

icy burning through young lungs

crying out in pain.

Swiftly grounded in

cotton-soft terrain, young limbs

buried warmly home,

Safe in parent’s scent.

Whisper stirs young curls asleep.

Unformed thoughts take flight.
