mind churns

body aches

~

strip down

shower off

earplugs in

door open

step over

door shut

slide through

settle deep

lights out

dark falls

waves dissipate

water settles

~

bones s-t-r-e-t-c-h

heart slows

gravity melts

spirit rests

chaos fades

universe hums

~

mind stills

body heals

    Awesome poem, Donna! Floating is the best!!! I love a good float sesh, but I've only ever done it in the open water—I've considered the tanks but I'm worried I'll get too claustrophobic.
