The buoyancy of Love

In stillness
and reflection
we find the strength
to ride the wild waves
of the storm.

In maintaining our ties
to that which feeds
and keeps us safe
we find the freedom
to sail into the wind.

In sinking down,
in letting ourselves
be inundated
with tide,
or tears
we come to know
the buoyancy
of Love.

The water looks so still, and the reflections are so distinct.

I especially like the third stanza of your poem.
