Vignette Water

I am afloat.  Lying on my back in the water, floating.  Be it a shallow creek, a latent pond, a calm lake, a flowing stream, a smooth sea, a vast ocean, or a simple bathtub, I am soothed by floating in water.  In this place I am able to breathe deeply, soundly.  When the breath enters my body and travels through the expanse of my frame, I hold it momentarily.  In that moment before the release, I am in a dynamic I have searched for my entire life.  Everything is clear.  I find much sought after answers to the mysterious questions whirling about within.  In this place, I find forgiveness for my father's departure.  Not for leaving me, but for having to go.
