Belief Barriers -- Poetry 2011





Water is my element.

Snorkel, mask and fins…

floating above belief barriers

searching for releasing keys;

gurgling voices saturate ears

repeating a chant: give up…

certain things are not possible.

Mermaids and sirens whisper

reminders of dehydration

shriveling some dreams or the

drowning of vintage choices.

Slogging back to dry surface,

curiosity spiked with dogged

determination crosses hot sand

without detriment to bare feet…
