Bottom Dwellers

It’s not so much 

hitting bottom

but what you do

once you hit.

Do you kick and paddle

with all your might

desperate to resurface,

Spending every ounce of energy

to see if you can find

the world that once was?


Do you take a moment

to explore

the depths of the ocean floor,

discovering the wisdom

that only resides among the deep?

What if bottom is a place

visited from time to time,

where the  Holy

waits to teach you to 

breathe under water?
