today I swam in a lake
long strokes head half submerged
lungs expanding as the sky above
lit up from a blitz thunderstorm
my body caught in the middle
of the shimmering pool of deep blue
never hesitating I swam further
lighting strikes dancing above
rain drops creating miniature clouds
my face crashing through them
cut by giant drops of former oceans
as I submerged under the surface
the gentlest of hushes conquered my ears
raindrops playing a symphony above
accompanied by a song of a siren
she sang my name from the depth
sweetest lullaby penetrated my heart
sensing my impending transformation
fusing with the cosmic ocean
a sense of calm washed over
until my lungs caught fire
desperately desiring sweet sweet air
reborn I emerged and rose above the surface
a newlyborn titan in the making
liberated I now floated to
