One and Two

I was floating
in the open sea
on a bed of
thistle and weeds.
The waves,
they rocked me
in my makeshift cradle.
I was one with water,
and two with
my body.
I overlooked my
feeble, idle self
from the somber
rain clouds that were
ready to throw their
largest tantrum in
ages.
I do not know
how to escape the
impending tempest.
There is nowhere to
run;
there is nowhere to
bury myself,
except the depths of
this ocean,
slowly cocooning my
body with shrouds of
algea.

You should read "Lioness" and tell me what you think. And you get such good pictures for all of your work!
