Pink Lady

‘Pink Lady’ Lisa G Hunter
Beneath


I am floating beneath the water with clouds in my hair,

 I can’t lift my head
    the light is too bright
        yet it’s dark down here

 my lungs burst with the need for clear air

 I dare not breathe

 I want to savour this weightless
 clear-minded nothingness
 as I float on the cusp of the elements

 where sky meets water
 I am neither earth, nor air, 
 thought, nor feeling,

 until I break the surface,
 I am at peace
