Even as the tide recedes,
we are drawn to follow,
called to reach out and explore
that which pulls away;
born to run
from that which surges forth
for fear of being overwhelmed --
tossed by waves of emotion,
or stuck in the quicksand of connection,
watching, helpless, as the water rises
until we find ourselves at last
unable to breathe.
