How do you know…

All the planets are in alignment
Nothing unusual on the horizon
Contentedly I embark on another day of my life
Oblivious… I wade straight into water’s calm
Overhead sky blue with puffs of white
The sweet breeze brings no sense of catastrophe

A wrench
A shift
A fracture so profound that a snag has captured the very essence of me
Each time I attempt to move it tightens
Until my world is but a pinhole
Ironically starved of air the choker hold begins to dissipate
Released I realise I am but countless fragmented shale
The bedrock that was is no more
I lay scattered not knowing what is up or down
Buffeted by an out of control life
I am strewn further apart to a point
Where it’s impossible to gather any sense of who or what
So I stop
Let go
And wait in the hope for my tide to turn…
8th Sept
