A beautiful poem by Nancy Levin

Immersing and Emerging

i watch her swim
away from fear
toward a sea
free from restraint

she does not look up
or around
only within
breathing in and out
immersing and emerging

criticism crawls
out of her body
as she glides
into a confident sheath
peace ignites her core

for the first time
she understands awareness
by being seemingly unaware

standing now she rises
her flesh propelled by
bone muscle tendon
blood is rushing her
heart awake

all love begins
with self love
once you know
you are the root
of your own suffering
choose to disengage
from the periphery

harness to recognise
the strength inside
to magnetise

breath is the private mantra
guiding prayer
follow your feet knees hips
belly heart hands
be willing to lose your balance
surrender to what matters most
and dive into the unknown

- Nancy Levin
